As I was with discus fish for 7 years I was wondering could I make a food for oscars to, just to be their snack or something like that...
My discus are perfect fishes with similar food that I make for them..

For my red oscar i use this :

1. Frozen shrimps
2. Clamps
3. Salmon
4. Denerrle carny palets
5. Red paprika
6. Garlic
7. Peas
8. Apple
9. Banana
10. Metronidazole antibiotic (for hexamita, HITH)
11. Fish Vitamins (Sera fishtamin)

I hope to get him eat this sometimes in week, just as a med food... paprika in our discus hobby is perfect to get some red pop out... my red oscar will to i hope...

thx for your comments,

honestly, i do not believe that enhancer could make the fish more colorful...
just give them good water quality and healthy foods, colors will comes out naturally...
sample of no food enhancer... just natural foods...

My home brew, about once a month or so:
Tilapia and shrimp chopped
FD bloodworm
Omega 1, 2mm kelp pellets
Spirulina powder
Any crumbs, dust in empty food containers
Omega1 veg flake
Soaked in vitamin, usually Boyds, but currently using Seachem Nourish


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