I think oscars spit food out for various reasons. It could be its too cold or maybe it not the right size or maybe its cause they just aint sure or it could be something else. We have all heard about an o being used to/trained for one sort of food and having to starve it to get it to eat something else. One of my oscars spits worms(nightcrawlers) out, then in again, then out and then in again till it finally eats it (if another o dont get it first). I had another that would not eat frozen prawns but would eat them once they defrosted. All o's are different and I am a great believer in 'if it aint broke dont fix it'



We might think toilet water is disgusting but the dog dont. Its just water to him :sick:

TOUCHE!

Think of it this way, in the wild would the Oscar fish be fed a frozen treat?? Would he be served a hot meal?I think not. What better then to feed him the best choices of food and in the same natural manner (including temperature)that he would be used to in the wild? Like I said, different strokes for different folks. I'm not criticizing anyone for not doing what I do. I myself don't eat ice cubes and I can't envision any other living thing liking a big block of ice for dinner. Once swallowed, IF he swallows it, he may well regret it but can't do much about it either. (my last on this subject...)

Need to give away one healthy 1 year old Oscar if you know of anyone interested. See the adoption thread for photos. Thanks!

I stopped feeding food that wasnt defrosted a while back. As you say it seems more natural. As I see it the more natural the better. My last too
