In the year ive had my 8inch albino Oscar he always gets to a certain part of the day when he just flops on the floor of the tank and lys there but as soon as food is in the tank hes up but straight back down when the lights off, he starts to move around once the light is on but apart from that hes lazy as are my other 2 oscars is this bad?

Are your oscars in an area of the house where there is frequent traffic? Hubby's are in the living room, and the wall behind their tank has an opening that is almost as big as the tank, so they can see into the kitchen also. He considered a tank background but I told him not to because Bubba & Gump wouldn't be able to see! They are constantly watching myself and the kids move around the house and begging for food. With my 2 kids, the 2 I babysit and 3 big dogs there is always something to peak their curiousity and I only see them resting at night.
