    not a big fan of feeder goldfish, but nice tank. I'm sure having it barebottom helps keep it clean. your friend has 3 poop machines in there.

    He makes sure they have a well balanced diet.

    His tank has been changed many times, and he's not quite finished with it, yet. He was talking about adding a substrate and a rockscape in the future.

    Awful. It is perfectly possible to keep oscars healthy and well fed without feeding them live fish. There are no health benefits to the oscar in feeding them alive. It's just for the owner's so-called entertainment. The levels of stress in those goldfish must be astronomical.

    Sorry, not a fan at all.

    I didn't mean to offend anyone...

    It's a common occurrence in nature that smaller fish are eaten by larger fish. It probably just happened a billion times by the time you have read my post. I understand that in nature, the fish do have an opportunity to run and hide, though.

    I read about and see videos of people using feeder fish all the time for larger fish. His fish don't eat goldfish as a main source of food, even though they are naturally carnivorous. Their main source is Cichlid pellets.

    I had no idea that this was looked down upon. I won't condone in feeding live fish.
