No need to cut. Just wait until he is bigger and see if he will try it.

Yummy treats are not necessary.

my fish won't eat any freeze dried or frozen food however it will eat any fruit/vegetables i drop in the tank so much for being a carnivorous fish lol

Don't dwell on what went wrong. Instead focus on what to do next

Oscars are omnivorous, & giving them fruit is actually one of the best things you can do for them.....they need Vitamin C in their diet....my baby Red will eat small pieces of apple & orange. B)

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.
