"also whats better for growing oscar? "

Water changes.

Also, try Omega One cichlid pellets....even my fussy Jag will take them

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.

I think I'll probably stick with the staple. As for which one will make them grow, I couldn't answer that question. You would have to get somebody to have two Oscars from the same batch in separate tanks feeding them on the two different foods to determine if it makes any difference. Even then you couldn't be 100% sure because Oscars don't always grow at the same rate. Hikari have got a well-respected reputation for producing good quality foods so I really don't think you should be worrying about which one to use. Maybe use the colour enhancing food when they get a bit older

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

from worse to best

staple, gold, bio-gold

Omega One and New Life Spectrum both have better ingredients than hikari.

Hikari gold ok, Omega1 better, have used NLS, a lot of my fish didnt care for it and the price is a turnoff. Also use dif Omega 1 freeze dried, everybody likes it. HBH super soft spirulina pellets should be a part of the diet as well. Not expensive and good addition for veg in Oscars diet.


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

i've fed my fish Omega One, gold, and bio-gold never noticed a difference

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