What now?

I recently treated my oscar for ick, as some of you know, and he's been fine for a while now....well now he has some slight discolorations towards his hind-end. He's been acting a little strange, but not too weird. I'll try to get a picture later, but anybody have any ideas what this might be? If i were to explain the look I'd say it is "Slimy" but I don't know if it actually is texturally.

I swear his environment is completely sound...water changes regularly and the tank is fully cycled. Params normal, everything.

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.

Was it that dumb of a question?

There is no such thing as a dumb question. :)

Does the slime on your oscar have a white/milky look to it?

Yeah kind of. It looks like there is more of it today, but maybe I'm just looking closely. It's definitely present though. :(

I'm doing all I can for this fish and he's super healthy--I haven't given feeder fish in a long time (since ick) and I don't intend to anymore, so I don't think it is from diet. I just don'tknow what to do for him.

Uhm, you don't have the new little guy in there with him do you?
I HOPE the new baby's in QT...there could have been transmission of some illness...

Fish have taken over my house. I threw away my couch to make room for another 125 gallon.

Whats your temp? if you havent already you should slowly raise your temp to 84-85 since the higher temps makes the ichs life span a lot shorter.
