I found mixing live food one day pellets another and blood worms and brine shrimp anywho I always mixed it up with my oscars it sounds to me like time is all you need if you keep a clean pond is say in about 8 months the oscars should be around 8 inches and fat

Maybe it was the animal instinct in me but I loved watching my oscars eat live I even feed them pinkies only about twice or three times a month as a treat and they loved me for it.
