I got 2 tiger oscars yesterday and have fed them blood worm but I'm not sure what else to feed them. I was thinking of feeding them 3 times a day, once in the morning, once at lunch or in the early afternoon and one at night time but I don't know what to feed them and when.

the fish are around 2 inches possibly smaller and I'm just not sure no what their diet should consist of. I've been reading all different forums and each usually have a different opinion on how to feed these guys. thanks

I bought my Tiger Oscars when they were about the same size as yours. At first I would feed them chichlid flakes but they made a mess in the aquarium and they didn't seem to keep the Oscars full for very long.
So I started researching and everyone says red worms and other insects are the best. So I spent a small fortune on over priced, dried out worms.
But then about 6 months ago I heard of a website called unclejimswormfarm.com.
I checked it out and ended up buying a red worm ranch. It has been working really good. The worms breed faster than my Oscars can eat them, they aren't dried out like the overpriced pet store worms, and they are parasite free.
The ranch fits right under my aquarium and my Oscars get excited and watch me catch their meal every day. It is really fun to watch them shake their heads and tails in excitement.
Also where the worms are breeding there are many different sizes some are so small you can barely see them, and others are almost as big as night crawlers. I think your young fish will like the small ones right now and grow into the big ones in no time.
I think you should Google the uncle Jim's website and check out the ranches and farms. It saves a ton of money and the Oscars love them.

To give your fish all nutrients they need I would recommend a good small sized cichlid pellet as their main food. The sticky guide in this forum is a good start.
