Question Rosy red minnows

Hey guys I know what peaple say about feeder fish but would it be ok to have a 10-20 gallon tank and breed and raise them for my Oscars?

It would but it is not something that is easy to do and I am pretty sure you will need a tank bigger than 10-20 gallons. Think something in the 55 gallon range. It really just is not worth it. A lot of money wasted for little sustenance. You will spend more time taking care of the feeders than the oscar itself. Buy a quality pellet food and supplement with krill, mysis shrimp, or other insects. If you absolutely MUST feed feeders quarantine them for 2-4weeks to make sure they are clean,.

"responsible fish keeper?... Didn't know there was any other kind"

I am not retarded I just can't spell
