    I would say that's a bad idea. Feed some thawed uncooked shrimp (cut in pieces) once or twice a week to vary his deit.
    Everything in moderation, especially moderation.

    Rosies, especially if you aren't breeding them yourselves, are a very bad idea. They can cary disease easily and you could easily lose all of your stock. They also offer very little as far as nutrition. If you want to feed live, try earthworms, red worms, try breeding guppies in quarantine, feed thawed shrimp, cichlid sticks, freeze dried krill/shrimp.

    Right now, either course is not the best for the oscar--or your collection.

    Especially if it's your favorite fish as you said.
