Might be fin rot, and if it is, do a water change and check the water quality.

What are you feeding them?

oscars13 01-04-2012 07:54 PM

im feeding them hikari cichlid pellets with the odd pinch of blood worms for a treat once and a while

So then it shouldn't be the diet... maybe it is just the way your oscar looks. My pleco has the smae thing but it is healthy.
