What is the lifespan of Oscars? It's been so long. He's my baby. I'm fifteen now and he was given to me when I turned 4. He's 9 years old.. His water quality is in check and he gets vitamin-enriched mollies once a week. He eats HBC Cichlid Gold Medium Pellets as a staple with some algae wafers, frozen and freeze-dried bloodworms thrown in here and there. Same as my JD.
