He doesnt look like he'll make it. :( Since we dont know if waterquality is the issue here, the only thing i can think is he may have sustained internal injury or damage to organs when he was beaten by the other Oscar. I dont think he'll make it and you might consider euthanizing. Im sorry but im at a loss as to what could be going on... :(

Ugh. Dont tell me that. I tried so hard. Do I euthanize or let him die in peace ? I heard horror stories of fish thrashing around and I am not sure where to buy the stuff.

I know you tried hard but theres only so much you can do. As to whether to let him die or euthanize thats up to you. Read this: www.oscarfishlover.com/fish-euthanasia

Clove oil is the most peaceful and you may be able to get it at a pharmacy like walgreens or something.

Im very sorry.
