I just recently started feeding my red oscar cichlid gold. I noticed my water got cloudy a little. Does anyone else have this problem?

No, unfortunately my oscar looooves to eat his poop and it breaks into small fragments and clouds the water up.

Do you have a scale to tell us weight or maybe some way to measure the volume you are feeding. That’ll give us a way to guage over feeding or not.

I am 90% that I am overfeeding because my dumb self didn't realize how small a little Oscar's stomach is. You can see how small he is from my pfp. I am going to cut back on feeding and look out for stomach bladder disease. Also do you know anything about giving them a pea to treat stomach b disease?

Why do you think that is an issue right now?
His stomach looks a little off.....That's why. I get real paranoid about diseases with him idk why.
