Hi, our black oscar Grumpy seems to be dying!
Scales on both sides seem to have somehow come off and he looks more whitish than black now.
Plus a patch of skin maybe around a quarter of an inch is coming off on one side - with meat exposed underneath! It looks like a thick scab and is coming off!
Grumpy won't eat and wont move from around the heater!
What is it???
We just lost our albino oscar a few days ago to something similar - his side looked like a raw burn before he died!
What's happening to our oscars? We've had this tank for 3 months without casualties, and it's the 2nd oscar in 4 days! Similar symptoms!
We isolated the heater really well to make sure it wasn't burns, since it very much looked like burns!
We were blaming our blood parrtos thinking that the oscar was suffering from the bites that got infected. But the parrots have always been there, and the oscars are dying!
