I raise bearded dragons, amd therefore I always have superworms around. I also breed dubia roaches for my dragons. Can I feed them to my Oscar if they're like say under 1"?

I also think I'm possibly overfeeding because my tank keeps getting absolutely filthy. How do I know you're much to feed? I do feed dried bloodworms, cichlid pellets, and a little pellet food. I feed twice a day and alternate what he gets. I also have a sucker fish in the aquarium with Mr. Grumps (my Oscar), and so I drop about 5 bottom feeder pellets I'm there a day.

I'm at a loss. I seriously have no clue what I'm doing here, and I'm overwhelmed by the amount of information on this site. Help? :(

I'm working on getting a larger tank. He's currently only I'm about a 25 to 30 gallon. I'm not sure of the exact size. He was recently given to me by my mother. He has one of those corner tanks. :-/

By sucker fish I assume you mean plecostomus of some kind. Probably a potential big one. You desperately need a large tank like right now. To keep both fish look for over 100gals. Until you get a bigger tank change 50% or more of the water every day. If you cant do this or get a bigger tank asap, seek out better homes for the fish. They are suffering by the hour in the current situation


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!
