    I need a bit of here, I don't know what size 'this size' is and it seems relevant to the question...

    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    Lightbulb Btw - They are messy eaters at 'this size' or any other size.

    I appreciate the pic but could you just plainly state their approximate size please.

    Including info like this in your OP, Or when specifically asked for it, Is a far more effective route to getting your inquiry answered.

    It would certainly seem to be the most direct way to provide us with that information, ESPECIALLY when asking about 'Oscars of this size' and it is quite likely to increase the numbers of replies you get.

    Just an idea you might consider.

    Measure them/Guestimate

    From the pic posted, That tank looks awfully small for two Oscars What size is it?

    This link has tons of feeding ideas for you to peruse.

    You're welcome.

    It's ok man but the more info you give us the more we can help - It doesn't work very well any other way you know.

    One other thing I would add is to try to make your posts more readable. Like homework you hand in, Because if it is hard to read people won't bother to read it and that does you no good at all.

    It need NOT be letter perfect at all but kinda make an effort, People DO appreciate when you are trying to communicate clearly.

    I have played Guitar since I was 12 and I can play bass and keep a beat on drums. Enjoy the journey on your instrument.
