What can you nurture a oscar fish?
i am feeding mine pellets. what else can i feed it? the oscar is approximately 3" long
The fact is, if we are going to talk approximately wild kept fish, an Oscar isn't even going to see a darn Comet or any other goldifsh anyways. Oscars are not maneaters or anything close to that neither. They are Omnivores and will accept a WIDE range of foods. It's matching in how they eat in the feral. You'll find them very pleased on better alternative live foods, such as crickets and grasshoppers, water bugs, daphnia, and an assortment of worms, they would all intrinsically encounter in the wild. I still feel Pellets, whether they are eating them, offer the best and safest nutrition for them. Pellets have an amazing nouns of protein as well as other needed foods to sustain a round diet. Suppliment your diet with other foods, such as bloodworms, krill, spiralina coated flake foods, plankton, and brine shrimp.
If an Oscar were also contained by the wild, it's diet does not and would not consist strictly on other fish as well. That is one reason why you do not see HITH deeply much there since they act almost within the same way they do in a reservoir. They are happy and readily go after most any foods that are around. They are a happy eater deeply, and most of the time, other fish are targeted simply because it can fit in it's mouth, not so much as hunger or a drive to eat other fish.
Store bought feeders as capably are a very poor choice to begin with since most of these fish are sold to stores as culled fish, unwanted from the breeder, and the thought levels given to these fish are very very low. It's an straightforward way, even if you don't feed heavily on feeders, to hold your Oscar catch a rather nasty pathogen such as Velvet, Costia, Columnaris or any other sort of point that would kill the fish. All in all, feeders are one of the final things you should ever consider feeding an Oscar. You can do much better on the pellets, live foods listed/mentioned above as suppliments, and a staple food as Spiralina coated flakes. I'd be curious to see someone post something negative in the region of that diet selection and be accurate at the same time.
Frozen or Live (some of these only come one way or the other)
Feeder Comets (Goldfish)
Frozen Cichlid Mix
Go to your local pet shop and inaugurate to purchase the frozen options on a regular basis (Like each payday whether that is a consideration) until you have a nice of variety. Then you can affix the live anytime its convenient. You will not kill them buy making pellets their staple diet.
There is a belief that constantly feeding single live contributes to hole in head disease. And remember, within the wild all fish eat live animals/plants/daphnia etc. so a commercial diet is not a big operation for them, just like most other fish. As long as you supplement with some well brought-up protein sources they will live long healthy lives.
Mine was 20" long when he died.he was so cool...I feed him feeder fish and crickets along with the cichlid pellets when he was smaller I remember feed him frozen shrimp I think...he loved all of it..
