that would be normal attitude of your fish sooner or later...
we must remember, Greg had develop craters or HITH overtime...
whether you alter anything or not, it will come to a point your fish will
change attitude... perhaps... the HITH is now taking its toll!

Keep in mind that Greg is an old fish and likely a bit weak from his illness. He doesnt need to eat more than a couple times a week. Quality over quantity every time.


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

Ahhh, sad to see, but I know your pain.

I just want to clarify, let's not always blame just water quality. I have 2 oscars, pushing 13 years old...yes, THIRTEEN... only one has HITH, developed past few months, and nothing I do subsides it. In my opinion, age has lots to do with it, as with most diseases. The fishes immune system is breaking down, like we all do with age. I only wish it were as simple as water changes and epsom salts... quarantine in a smaller tank with daily 80% water changes, adding epsom to water at 1 teaspoon per 5 gallons... this is all I've left to try, I'm not ready to watch him wither and die, but the lesions from his HITH are approaching danger zones. :(

in some way. yes I agree age has something to do with health condition
wherein the immune system becomes weaker as age progresses... however,
I also believe HITH is always associated with water quality over time... it may also
triggered by vitamin deficiency, and/or power leak in the system itself... yes, some
fish may not have infected because of stronger immune system but sooner of later,
it will also suffer... if the problem is not rectified ...

I am just happy that for a long time... I never had HITH in any of my fish...
I do lost many of them but for some reason or another but not due to HITH

Hello everyone greg is looking better already! Parts of the white patches are slowly going back to normal hes eating like he used to, swimming around, moving his stuff and being a menace again.
Im going to keep doing the more regular water changes thank you so much for all the help i called vets and they couldn't help any where near as much... i did also use a tank treatment called multi cure and i really think it helped! Im excited to post another photo when hes recovered a bit more xx
