I'm a bit angry with the pet store for not giving me the fish I asked for.
I actually asked if it was, in fact a Tiger Oscar and I was confirmed.
Grrr..
Although, it's partially my fault for not doing my research before I
bought the fish..
-sigh-

Yeah. I know, but I'm working on getting a larger tank. He's still small.

He will outgrow that tank in a matter of weeks. You need to buy a new tank like today. Otherwise you should probably return the fish.

All I can say is this is bad and you need to get a 20-30g tank at least, like now...

Do you have any water-test kits?

Do a 50% water change right now, the ammonia is probably high. In that small of a tank, ohh my, within a couple hours it could be 2-3ppm.

I'm getting a new tank VERY soon.
We may return the fish, anyways.
One, to get an OSCAR. Two, because he's not doing well.
And many other reasons.
I do need to get the tank anyways because I have two goldfish in a
one gallon I bought when my Molly gave birth. They need the five gallon
and he needs the bigger tank.

I'm getting a 28 gallon soon. That'll be his tank and
the goldfish will have the five gallon.

Hey wait...first you need to do a fishless or fish cycle (danios/barbs) and get a 55g+ tank before you ever buy another oscar or jack dempsey. Don't just go back to the store, inform yourself, look up fishless cycling, and get a 55g+ tank.
