My 12" beautiful Oscar ran into the side of his tank Saturday morning! He is the only fish in a 93g cube, and the family pet. We have had him for 5 years and love him so much.

He is not eating (last ate Saturday) and has very labored breathing. It looks like his mouth isn't closing all the way when he breathes. He is staying in a slightly head up position of about 30 degrees. He doesn't seem to be in pain.. but clearly is not right.

Is there anything I can do guys?!!

Hello and welcome to OFL. Would be nice to view a video, or at least some clear pics of the fish. May have just had his bell rung, possible dislocation of the jaw. Really need a look to form an opinion. Dont distress about not eating. A healthy 5yr old Oscar can easily go several weeks with no food at all, and show no ill effects


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