Deformed Oscar mouth?
I was at my lfs and I was checking out some Oscars, I noticed one has a really messed up mouth
I know this isn't my problem but if I can I would like to point it out to the manager or something.. Not that he probably hasn't noticed but that he should probably do something about it. I'm not sure if this is a disease they are prone too of if he was born with it. If he was born with it then I'm sure he'll be fine because he is a pretty big Oscar. I'll try to describe it the best I can as I have no picture. The side of his lip appears to be sunken in. It looks like he is 'biting' one side of his lip. and in the middle theres a weird little flappy piece of skin or something. It doesn't look very nice at all
I feel really bad for him. What if no one wants him and the store just lets him die because he's deformed and can't make them money? Any ideas anyone? Could this maybe be an old injury? I never thought of that... Thanks!
