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.

For animals, the entire universe has been neatly divided into things to (a) mate with, (b) eat, (c) run away from, and (d) rocks.

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.
