I can see how it would be fun to watch an oscar hunting another fish. However its not fun to watch the smaller fish run for its life. Overall I dont find it fun

Oscars dont need to be fed live fish, many people keep oscars without feeding live fish so it isnt necessary

Also it is not natural for an oscar to hunt its prey in a confined space. In nature the prey at least has a chance- it doesnt in a tank. Just my personal feelings

I can't get no sleep

definitely have to agree. If someone came in here telling us they really enjoy watching their 4 foot red tail Catfish,hunt down live Oscars, I think the majority of us wouldn't be too happy. Now think about somebody who only keep small fish.

I don't criticise people unless they are getting some kind of sadistic enjoyment out of watching a living creature be killed. The people that post Oscars eating frogs, or piranhas eating the Oscar s bit by bit when it still alive those are the type of people who I despiset.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

Oh im in noway into the cruel approach to the feeding. I just think its enjoyable and a treat to let the Oscar eat the way the "fish god" designed him to do so.

I suppose keeping a tank of feeder fish is no different than us having fields of cows and barns of chicken that we slay for meals vs hunting deer all year.

I do plan to feed my fish natural foods. No frogs but some little tadpoles seem like they would be a good treat in the spring.
