Hi, hopefully you guys can help. I bought an Oscar from Wal-Mart, I know not the best place but he/she caught my eye! The fins are damaged and I was wondering what is the best way to get this cured. I'm hoping it's not fin rot! He doesn't act sick and seems to be eating somewhat ok considering he's in new surrounding. He seems to be liking the top of the tank though. Also he tends to change color....from deep black to a lighter shade of black and the goes back to the deep shade. Is this normal? I'm not very informed when it comes to Oscars. He's a Tiger Oscar with beautiful orange and black colors. His home is a 100 gallon tank with excellent water conditions. I bought him with the damaged fins just hoping to give him a better home. Thanks in advance for any advice that can be given. I'm already starting to love this little guy/gal!

He should be fine if your water is good, just keep up regular water changes and his fins should heal up in no time.
