Oscar fish: Is this a normal behaviour?

Postby danielgdz » Thu Feb 27, 2020 1:30 pm

Hi friends!
I have a couple of Oscar fish (Around 1 year old). I have a question about their pooping... When i feed them with pellets (Aquarium Cichild Carnivore), my oscars do poop normally, but when i feed them with tilapia phillets, they don't poop.. or if they do, is only like very tiny, black and slim lines. Is this a normal behaviour? Thanks so much for your help! :fish: :thumb:

It’s normal. Pellets are dry, flesh is 90% water.
