So I got a 3 inch albino O the other day and he is bigger than my 2inch O I already had and he is not competing for food with the smaller one. So the smaller one eats slightly more than usual is this normal? And have you got any tips on feeding both my Oscars. And my water is good.

Welcome to OFL. Going to need some more info to help figure out the problem. Tank size? Tank mates? Filtration? Water change schedule? Water parameters on a liquid test kit? Get a liquid kit if you don't have one, like API master kit. Is your tank cycled? How long has it been cycled? New oscars can sulk for hours or days. You put an oscar into the territory of an oscar that has been in there for awhile so that will cause problems with bullying as well.

Go do a water change - the solution to pollution is dilution.

newly purchased oscar will normally sulk for a while until fully adjusted with the new environment... but as Jason had said, tank size and territorial issues may had an impact to new fish. people can help you out effectively with those info being asked...

welcome on board.
