Mom wants to get an Oscar to reduce her guppy population. Any advice?
As some of you may remember, my mother has three tanks and an overly large guppy population. She has managed to reduce it somewhat but she is still having trouble separating the males from the females before they are old enough to breed.
She got a job at PetSmart about a year ago and has noticed how beautiful the Oscars are. When she found out how large they get and that they are carnivorous, she decided she wanted one to help thin her population. I asked her to let me research it first.
I've noticed a lot of post about not feeding them feeder goldfish (even if you breed them yourselves) but what about guppies with the addition of pellets and/or bloodworms for a varied diet?
Any other info would also be much appreciated! Thanks!
