I don't see why it would mater, if your going to use them as feeders why wait to feed them to him?

The girl's got crabs!
Whenever they look like a decent meal. Not much point putting them in too young or he won't get much out of them at all.

Dosnt it depend on the size of the oscar and what fry we're using?
Anyway, if the oscar is fully grown and youre using guppies, the guppies should be nearly fully grown. Platies and mollies perhaps half. But as calla says, just enough to be worth the energy to consume, and be gutloaded with good foods.
