PostSubject: What are we feeding our Oscars?   Mon Mar 30, 2009 4:04 am

Hi, I know there are several of us Oscar owners now and I was wondering what we are all feeding and what results we are getting? Eg: affect on colour, waste production etc.

Mine are getting prawn, lancefish, algae wafers and a variety of sinking/floating pellets.

Just this week I have started them on spirulina sticks and hikari cichlid gold (meant to enhance colour - been recommended by other oscar keepers).

I'll let you know how it goes!

E has a couple of hikari cichlid gold for his breakfast
I chop up a prawn and a mussle for him to have during the day.
I also give him some floating pellets,and algae wafers,
if you put your ear to the tank you can hear him chomping them..
and every other day he gets 1 cube of defrosted bloodworm.
which he loves.
he has also got some brown stick things, but he's not keen on them.
oh and a couple of frozen defrosted pea's a week squeezed to take the outer skin off.
he loves his pea....bless and chews it very nicely...lol
and his poo is brown.but he goes in the bubbles
where the bubbles wipe his bum Wink
