How big is rex ? What is the tank size and filtration ?

I would cut it down to twice a day and add new life spectrum and or omega one. Also add in a a veggie based pellet.

You wont be feeding the flake for long since he will outgrow that pretty fast. I high quality name brand pellet like the Hikari will be fine as a staple and the insect treats are a much better choice than live feeder fish. Remember the more that goes into Rex... the more that comes out. So its a fine balance to not overfeed and cause even more tank maintenance.

Vitamin C is also important in the development months of young Oscars. While quality pellets have some content, a boost does wonders. Boyd's VitaChem is the preferred supplement. It is a liquid vitamin, absorbs very well into freeze dried foods, krill in particular.


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