So early on the oscar was ripping the heads off of small rosies, then I discovered those little whiteclouds, which he loves. Now I'm reading all this about feeder gish and thinking of other foods. I've been doing some ghost shrimp. Is that a good change. He won't eat pellets yet, and some other site said lettuce, but he hates that too. I figure he'll have to eat it if that's all I feed him, but my Arowanna loves those whiteclouds too. Oh yeah, and Oscar loves algae discs. What will he like? What's healthy?

Price check! Clean up, Aisle Six! Rotted body landsliiiiiiiide. And don't forget our special sale on every bone broken chickennnnn! Hurry! Enjoy our tasty hammer smashed face! Uh, Aisle Three.

don't feed meaty foods too often, they are way too fatty for a fish's normal diet

Well Paul is right. If you start feeding soely beef heart that is all they crave. What I do is first two feedings of the day is Pellets, and the evening feeding is Beef heart. This way they still desire both. A couple feeder fish every two weeks. Variety is key! ;)
