Hey all,
I have an oscar and I plan to feed him live foods and I was wondering if minnows from the canal would be safe to feed him, I would think they would be safer than those nasty guppies at the LFS. What do you guys think?

Good morning,

The only live fish that I recommend feeding to your tropical fish are ones that you have raised yourself. This way you know whether or not the feeder fish have any diseases. If you do want to use minnows from the creek, I suggest placing them in a quarantine tank for at least 2 to 4 weeks before you feed them to your other fish.
