when my oscars take a prawn they lie down on the bottom of the tank till they swallow it and then they still kinda sit there till they get more food is this normal

Sounds like they might be over eating.

they should always be eager to feed until that have had so much that they will hold it in their mouth because there is no room to swallow it. is it after they have already eaten some?

i had this happen with frizen blood worms...they did that when the worms were still frozen. When I thawed them first the oscars stopped behaving like that. Are the prawns frozen?

no there defrosted, but as ive said my larger oscar is much slower and only has one eye, i meant to say that it is the red tiger oscar that has the problem of being lazy after he eats, i assume it is because he over eats now because my larger oscar is always eager to eat because he eats about 4 3 inch prawns were as i put like 10 peices in but the red tiger always gets them even if they are on the bottom near my large albino
