Big enough for Crickets?
Hey guys just wanted your opinion if my Oscars are big enough for crickets yet there about 3 1/2 inches in length, and if so how big can the cricket be?
They will be probably be ok now if you feed it live crickets as a treat only and not a staple diet.
They naturally in the wild would hunt them so I do not see why they cannot have them now.
With regards to size, smaller probably until it matures a bit more.
Be Careful feeding them live crickets though - heard a ton of stories of people having one escape and it being extremely hard and annoying to catch in the house once released.
thanks taz, i was going to put them a a container and use them as an occasional treat, how many should i feed them ?
Probably one per fish if you have more than one oscar.
ok thank you!
Success one of them ate two small crickets
Excellent news...dont feed them too many though...more of a treat for them.
Once a week or at least every 3 days perhaps.
thats what im planning on:)
just thought i would jump in on the subject of escaping crickets.
beware if they get out,they will live very happily in your house,and the chirping
depending on your nerves can be horrid.
i feed crickets to the tree frogs and toads,which thankfully are in a exoterra cage,so they don't get out,
but i have had escaped ones occasionally,and they are very hard to cash,unless like me
you find it in your bed :shock:
it may be a good idea for you to squash their heads so they don't swim off and climb up a wire
and get out.
well i got 20 of them and 4 died bust the rest were happily consumed by my Oscar:) as for escaping i kept them in a whipped cream container with holes in the lid
