From my somewhat limited experience with oscars they are pretty lazy fish, howerever Not eating is a concern. Visit your local aquarium store- not a multi-pet corporate store like petco or petsmart because they don't know shyt about the animals they traffic. You need to go to a store that specializes in fish. They should be able to help you out. Good luck to you and your oscar.
my oscar has alot of scals missing can anyone tell me what's wrong?
my oscar keeps rolling-like he can't keep his balance upright-any suggestions
This sounds like it could be serious. Have you spoken with your local aquarium/fish store? note: big box pet store employees generally don't have the expertise required for a medical diagnosis. Seek out a good ol fashioned mom and pop fish store or try a specialized online forum: aquariacentral dawt cawm is a good bet
We recently got a large oscar in a 55 gallon tank - at first seemed pretty good - although not sure how much he is eating. Last night he acted like something was hurting and every 5-10 minutes he would go crazy and slam into the tank then lay at the bottom until he did it again. Didnt think he would make it through the night - but he did. Anything I can do to help - do not want to lose him??
My fish has a mate, she is pregnant, and has been laying on her side for the past week breathing heavily. It is worrying me, and i can't tell if she is choking, or is in labor, she is really pregnant, and i am really worried about her. Her mate has been staying next to her, kind of with a worried look on his face, and he is fine. I don't want my oscar to die, because she is really important to my family. So please, help me make my fish better!
