What size are they now?....I would place them in a smaller tank where they would not have to compete with anyone else for food which would be good quality pellets,and frequent water changes would be easier.
Yeah...I'm also getting that idea...they are 2 inches juveniles.

Yep,get them into a 55 maybe and you can do weekly fifty percent water changes....not sure of the species of snakehead you have but it could become a real problem to everything else.

they are your fish lol, I would say yes, but you do what you want. Give them a good pellet as a staple diet, as much as they can eat a day, and water changes. They'll grow.
They are getting attacked by snakehead.I'll remove all Oscars to 150g tank until they get big.
