    What's a good cichlid food for medium size Oscars and other cichlids? The person I got tank from had topfin pellets or something but I feel like there must be better food. What do you recommend.

    Hikari cichlid gold and the have different sizes of pellets also feed him some crickets at least once a week.

    New Life Spectrum is very good and matches the Oscar's natural diet well. In descending order of top quality would be: Omega One, Dainichi, Hikari Bio-Gold, and Hikari Gold. I'll attach a very interesting article on feeding oscars that breaks their diet down and what you should use
    Adding a krill/shrimp supplement is good too.

    Hope this helps and best of luck!

    Personally, I don't like Hikari because most of their cichlid foods have a lot of corn. I prefer Omega One and New Life Spectrum. New Life Spectrum has several variants with pellet sizes appropriate for Oscars.
