hello and welcome to OFL. Not sure what you are asking about. Oscars do change color as they grow, and change shades with mood swings. Most, if not all Oscar ailments are directly related to water quality. Do you have readings for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate? Is the tank heavily filtered and fully cycled? What is your water change schedule? Food is not the greatest, but that may be a secondary issue. The more details you offer, the better we can determine if there may be a problem

Yes for sure, your water changes are far too small and too far apart. You need a liquid test kit, the API kit. You need water conditioner, Seachem Prime liquid or powder form called Safe. If your tap water has chlorine or chloramine, you are slowly poisoning the fish. 2 Oscars in any tank need a twice weekly water change of at least 50% volume per change. Your tank temp is good, but you need to really step up the maintenance

Your English is fine young man. Your tank is a good size, often people with problems don't have a suitable tank. Water quality is CRITICAL for Oscars. Your fish will do much better with far more clean water than you have been providing. To save money, get the conditioner called Seachem Safe. Initial purchase is costly, but it lasts a very long time and will protect your fish for water changes.

Try the liquid form of Safe. Its called Seachem Prime. If no can find that, try Tetra Aqua Safe.

30% a week will not do. You need a MINIMUM of 2 changes per week at a volume of at least 50% per change. If you are on a city water system that has chlorine in the water, you must have a conditioner. Chlorine is poisonous to fish. If you are on a well, you may be able to skip conditioner, but you need to know the quality of water added, whether that be city or well water. This is where a test kit becomes a valuable asset.
