I'm not sure that giving your address out is a good idea, you might want to edit your post.

You have to feed your fish colour enhancing food a lot more than once a week if you want to see any change in their colour. I think it would be a good idea if you post a photograph of your Oscar so we can have a good look at it. Exactly what are you trying to achieve? To be perfectly honest with you, I don't have a lot of luck with colour enhancing foods when fed to my Oscars. You may also have a fish that you cannot improve on the colours. If you've got an albino Oscar for instance, they don't have a lot of colour pigments so you won't improve on a colour because it doesn't have any.

Colour enhancers can only(if they work) enhance colours. If the colour isnt there in the 1st place you cant enhance it. They supposedly make colours brighter

the best colour enhancing food imo is krill shrimps and prawns because the shells contain carrotine(i think thats how you spell it!!!) which brings out reds and oranges in fish.

i owned red bellied piranhas a few years back and fed them these and their bellies were really bright red,much better than the ones in the shop!

hope this helps
