Hay, if he likes carrots go for it, it can't hurt. I would feed this once or twice a week.

Never heard of Albinos looseing there eyesight, can't imagine why.

If this is going on carrots make you see in the dark. Thats just plain funny. Theres actually been studies on this old wives tale. Your skin will turn orange before it actaully assists your eyesight at all.

And you need to eat nothing but carrots all the time.

So I would say if your Oscar likes carrots awesome its a good source of vitamin c for them. Keep it up. I think I will try the same when I get home.

But no it won't affect his eyes.

Don't forget there are many different types of vitamin. The most comprehensive source of the required vitamins is boyds vita-chem.

Ive got some liquid multi vitamins for humans and it doen'st have the same mix or concentrations. It also has a very short shelf life. I will be getting boyds in the future.

if your fish eats carrots, that would be fine on daily basis... it will enhance the coloring...
we normally do that with flowerhorn... my oscar don't like it but the pacu did...
