That's why as pretty as anthias are, I'd never do them with the feeding regimine I prefer - once daily or every other day.

I would say this is why your nitrates are out of control.

Everything that you put in there will turn into waste one way or another.

3x daily is massively over feeding.

Once a day max, maybe even once every other day.

Sorry, posted in the wrong thread, i suppose that's what I get for reading too many threads in one session.

Apologies.

Does anybody actually know about Oscars? I know how much to feed. I have done extensive research on these fish before I got them. So I hope everyone realizes that young Oscars do eat 3 times a day

I think you are in the wrong section.

No oscars in our tanks here.
