when the egg caught fungi, have you done any water change? the mere development of fungi among all eggs mean the water is bad... better check
or do water change immediately... those beautiful oscar need pristine water.

Beautiful Oscar pair you have there. I encourage you to be positive. Showing some swimming ability, getting herself off bottom is FAR more important than eating. An adult Oscar can go an absurd amount of time without eating anything. Several weeks without issue. I have a female that did the opposite of yours. Ate not one spec of anything for 5 weeks, then laid a huge batch of eggs. This was a few years ago, I still have her, obviously fine. Keep the water clean as you are, I am confident she will eat when she is hungry


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

Clean water is always a good path forward. Not knowing specifically if anything is wrong leaves no options. A little background please... what has been your usual maintenance up until this issue? What size tank? Your original post you say water is "good". Do you have specific readings from that time? Water is undoubtedly good now, given the heavy water changes, but perhaps a water issue prior to egg laying?
