Postby swrighty747 » Sun Jul 15, 2012 3:26 am

Hey guys
I am thinking of making my own food for my oscars and I have been reading recipes on the net for it and have sort of mixed what people have said to suit what i have avalible and am just going to see what u guys think of it before I make it and so you's can give me advice if I'm missing any thing or if something shouldn't be in there
Here's what I have so far:
prawns
Frozen fish
Shrimp
Bloodworms
Baby bananna food
Baby carrot food
And frozen peas
Thanks Sam

i would suggest leaving out the bloodworms, as they tend to be rather dirty. I would prefer not to add the bacteria and whatever is in the bloodworm slop to a frozen food. you will need a binder such as gelatin or Agar. Some will suggest adding some garlic and or frozen spinach.I used to fee mine beef heart.

Personally, I disagree, for a number of reasons. I've purchased many items at our farmers market that were baked by neighbors in their kitchens at home, and I've never gotten sick...... :dancing:

Nothing like home-baked, farmer's market beef heart and bloodworms in agar, am I right, boys?! I eat it all the time, and I'm healthy as a horse! ;)

Good recipe i used to make my own Oscar food after a bout with Hith. I added health store vitamins cured the Hith extremely fast and my Oscar looked amazing.
I did this for my smaller fish at the time also and the colors were outstanding in all of them.
