i have a new 3 inch oscar. at the moment i am feeding him hikari mini pellets because i already had the food. My LFS recomended medium pellets over mini. he can eat the mini pellets fine but should i just get the medium pellets imeadiatly and let the mini pellets whaste or should i just wait untill my mini pellets are done and then buy medium pellets

Mine is 4" plus and 2 medium pellets take him a long time to chew up and swallow. He takes small pellets well. I think get a pack and feed more of the mini but maybe one of the medium every other day to work him into it. Do you only feed pellets?

do you want to have this conversation in instant messages rather than the forums

in about 4 months you'll want the bis pellets, and the GS won't last long! ummm, tasty.

I agree, the ghost shrimp won't last long. I breed feeder guppies in a 10g by mine to that I feed the babys and they love them. Done feed the ones you get from your LFS, use them to breed your own.
