Types of Foods We Recommend Feeding to Oscar Fish

After carrying out a survey on our community forum, I have compiled a list of various types of food that our members feed their Oscars.  Some of the commercially available food listed may be unavailable in your particular country. However much of the food listed is easily found in your backyard, in other words its FREE!!!.  Just one warning before feeding harvested food to your Oscars, do not collect food from areas of the garden that has been treated with pesticides, whereas there is little chance that you'll actually kill you Oscar, you may well upset its stomach so better be safe than sorry.
