Thank You..I think ...
those Oscars are sick man..... is it necessary to feed them live goldfish or whatever that was? I know in the wild thats what they would eat, but in captivity will they not accept some form of manufactured food?
Total drool over that tank, if only I had the space.....
Thanks guys. I feed them "feeder fish" only once a week usually on Wednesday's.. And feed them "hikari cichlid gold pellets" twice a day. And every 3 days or so I'll throw in 3-4 frozen brine shrimp cubes if I have some. I just think feeding them pellets would be like us eating McDonald everyday, so I mix it up to try and keep them on a nice healthy diet.
I have made up my mind. The 240 gal is going to be turned into a lake tanganyika aquarium. I rather have a bunch of beautiful bright colors and assorted cichlids from that lake then big fish. Posted via Mobile Device
