 Hi  friends,
         One  more  test  for  your  experience  (Pardon  me  I  am  new  to  this  forum  hence  lot  of  questions).  Can  I  feed  my  OScars  with  small  cockroaches.
 
          I  am  aware  that  I  can  feed  them,  other  insects  &  flies.  what  about  cockraches.  I  have  an  abundant  supply  at  my  home.

 Yes.  Just  make  sure  the  cockroaches  have  not  come  in  contact  with  any  pesticide.

 You  can  feed  cockroaches  to  your  Oscars  but  what  about  the  contamination.  Better  to  stick  on  available   healthy  foods.

 Cockroaches  normally  come  out  of  sewer   holes.  I  dont  think  its  too  hygienic  to  feed  them  to  your  Oscars....

 My  juvenile  Oscar  even  used  to  eat  small  sized  lizards  which  you  ocassionally  find  in  the  house.  Unfortunately  I  had  to  give  it  away  after  my  55  gallon  tank  burst.  Inspite  of  having  4  other  medium  to  big  sized  tanks,  I  could  keep  it  due  to  compatability  issues.

 Oscars  sure  love  cockroaches.
 But  many  roaches  are  pesticide  resistant  and  carry  pesticide  on  themselves.
 You  will  never  know  till  your  fish  is  floating  upside  down.  Crying or Very sad  
 
 On  how  powerful  the  pesticide  was.   Sad

 Hi  
      Yesterday  i  bought  2  red  Oscar  from  my  LFS,  they  are  in  7"  in  size,  i  kept  them  in  100gallons  tank  and  the  LFS  keeper  said  that  he  is  not  at  all  sure  about  sexing  the  Oscar  "female  or  male".  I  am  the  beginner  in  the  case  of  Oscar.
      But  i  found  its  not  easy  to  identify  the  male  and  female  in  oscarlover.com,on  the  other  hand  they  are  saying  that  papilla  will  be  visible  on  matured  female  Oscar  before  laying  eggs  and  at  the  time  this  will  not  visible  on  male  and  also  the  male  will  chase  the  female  frequently,  the  female  will  select  a  place  to  lay  eggs  and  she  will  always  be  there  for  a  long  time  (5-10  hours)
      Likewise  one  of  my  Oscars  is  also  doing  the  above  mentioned  behaviors,  I  think  she  is  female,  another  one  is  simply  chasing  her  and  some  times  he  is  nibbing  on  her  mouth.
   I  provide  a  slate  for  them  to  lay  eggs,
   Right  now  am  feeding  pellets  and  blood  worms  but  they  like  to  eat  pellets  only  they  are  not  eating  the  bloodworms  
 
   Then  I  want  to  know  what  type  of  food  they  will  like  to  eat?
 Give  me  your  advice  pls.
 
 Thank  You
 Udhay.

 Aquaboy,
 
 If  you  really  wanna  feed  roaches,  I  would  suggest  you  chop  off  the  legs  and  feed  them.  I  know  that  sounds  gross,  but  theres  a  big  possibility  of  the  barbels  on  the  legs  tearing  the  ntestines  of  the  fish.
 
 A  friend  of  mine  lost  his  aro  this  way,  and  found  this  out  when  he  did  a  post  mortem  on  the  fish.
 
 Just  my  2  cents!
