These shrimp are coming from where? Local lake or river? Not advisable to put in your Oscar tank. Could be carrying who knows what. You want to see Ivory eat something live, go with terrestrial critters, like earthworms, mealworms, crickets.


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

my mentor is of a community college they have an aquaculture program and have like 20 ponds or so so im not sure if the shrimp are in the pond or in tanks, cause i saw him have some little shrimp in tanks also, i seen him feed his little pickeral some feeder fish the other day think it was lifebearers i think not sure but the all fish he has looks fine and healthy, he is in charge of the fish farms and industrial assistant for my college program , i have faith in his water quality but if its coming from the pond i dont think ima test its luck

Maybe someone with more experience with invertebrates will chime in, but if I am not mistaken diseases from shrimp cannot be passed to Oscars/Cichlids?? At least that has always been my belief and have been feeding shrimps, crawdad's, etc. for years?? :blink:

Not too sure coming from wild though, that would be my only concern... I just recently learned the trick is to feed them veggies and stuff that are good for fish that is hard to get them to eat. Nutrition is double fold then...
