I'd look into their fins and see if there are rays that seem to have been unusually shorten.
Use tweezers to remove the spine.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Got any melaleuca oil (tea tree oil)? If you keep putting that on it, generally the "sliver" of whatever it is will come to the surface. My hubby is a home builder and gets wood in his fingers fairly often, and this always works. I didn't know you could "pet" an oscar though!! Cool fish!!
