we have been feeding him pellets for a while. We changed the pellets from quality ones to cheapy ones due to didn't have time to go up to the cities. Now the oscar is always hungry is it due to low quality pellets or just plain not good enough anymore? I was thinking because how big she is it's not filling her up so she might need worms or.......? What would YOU guys think that would be good for her health and fill her up?

Big cichlids just knows how to beg for foods. It's one of the reasons people consider big cichlids wet pets.

Yeah oscars and midas's cichlids are notorious beggars of food. I know my midas would eat 20 or medium sinker pellets if i let him. :lol: What sized pellets you feeding?
