For the last few days my Oscar has been laying sideways at the bottom of the tank. It's starting to swell up very badly, even the eyes are buldging out farther than usual. The eyes are also cloudy and it looks like its breathing very hard. Besides the eyes and it's breathing it doesn't move at all. My other Oscar fish is doing perfectly fine though. Please help I hate seeing it like this.

Hi there, can you please post a photograph? Also, have you tested the water for ammonia, nitrate, nitrate and pH? Sounds as if this is down to poor water conditions. How big is the aquarium and what kind of filtration are you using? Unfortunately, it sounds as if the Oscar is on its last legs, not sure if there is anything that you will be able to do now.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)
