Not the first, and I am sure not the last. He really nailed something. Behavior is fine, and I will do some extra wc on his tank.

Sorry, it should work now. I think he is hitting the water outlets on the emp 400. They hang kind of low. He has had a number of less severe injuries, but I may need to swap to an aq110 temporarily and start looking for a deal on a canister.

Looks a little better today, and he is acting normal. Do you think I should add pimafix, or melafix to the tank? How is the heterospilus? Better I hope.

I would not add those items, just let clean water do the trick.

The het is still swimming around but now is hugging the bottom more and not acting totally dazed, still very shy and spooked.

I came home to max with a gash from his nostrils to the top of his head last week. White flesh exposed the whole way up, looked like he was hit with an axe. Doubled my WC and its cleared up already. I'm guessing he nutted the over flow box or the center brace, I cant see the inlet/outlet tubes on canister flters doing that kind of damage.

I forgot to mention the tank looks green because I fight algae like you would not believe in this tank. It is in the kitchen(still working on getting one in the bathroom ;) ), and is directly across from one window and next to another. The boss says no blinds, so I am kind of stuck. I am lucky she let me put it here at all. If I ever move the oscar, it would be a great spot for a planted tank.

My previous 8" oscar after a battle with a piece of driftwood.



After 1 month of just regular water changes, notice the scarring
