 Should  be  okay  once  in  a  way.  While  cockroaches  are  fed  to  many  fish  including  Oscars  and  Arowanas  all  over  its  best  you  do  not  consciously  feed  them  to  your  fish.  This  is  because  the  household  cockroach  soon  become  pesticide  resistant  and  carry  a  lot  of  the  stuff  on  them.
 Unless  the  roaches  are  bred  specifically  for  feeding,  your  fish  could  go  for  a  six.
