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 would just keep a close eye on him for a while, what's slimey? is it visible above the scales??

Was it that dumb of a question? :oops:

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

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

dprUsh83 10-27-2006 01:53 PM

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? :shock:
I HOPE the new baby's in QT...there could have been transmission of some illness... :cry:

dprUsh83 10-27-2006 02:15 PM

Yeah they're in the same tank :(

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.

dprUsh83 10-27-2006 02:21 PM

Temp is at 82...I'll raise it though, It looks nothing like ick, though....I had treated ick prior to this, though
