So I have a red and tiger oscar I've had about 2yrs now and they finally laid eggs. This was about two days ago when I came home from work today the eggs were gone and I'm assuming my catfishes ate them. But now the tiger is just staying in one spot looking like it's having problems breathing and will not eat at all he would shut down a buffet if u kno what I mean. My tiger only swims to the rock where the eggs use to be checks it out then swims back to the corner. It's almost like he's depressed or something is this possible ?

welcome to oscar fish lover oscars don't have empathy towards their eggs or fry (baby fish) in fact it is quite possible that the oscars ate the eggs themselves because they were not fertilised

however if the fish is gasping/having problems breathing it can mean he's ill what are your water parameters ammonia, nitrites, nitrates, filtration water change schedule etc

if you can post some pics or even better a video it might help to

Upload a vid to youtube and copy and paste the link in the forum here. To add photos create a free photobucket account, upload them to photobucket the copy and paste the img code to the forum here. Better able to help you if the questions from the last post get answered.

Go do a water change - the solution to pollution is dilution.

Water changes every 2-3weeks
And checking water levels nitrate etc everything looks good just did a water change a week before they laid eggs
