I know the vidieo isn't that good. If you look just above his eye you can see a small hole. I think he just whacked his head :blink: I think Im gonna leave it bare bottom for a bit. my health going to shit doesent help the nitrates got to around 40 b4 last WC. Gonna go buy a new test kit as this one is old and Im not 100% confident in it. Ill post another vid in a few days hopfully the hole will be gone. Im just kinda concerened. If you guys see anything please all advise and opinions appritiated.

If the small dent above the left eye was not there yesterday, than it is a scrape.

Quick fix if it is HITH, would be to get nitrates to below 20ppm, better to below 10ppm. Then get epsom salt (magnesium sulfate with no other ingredients). Mix 1/2 cup of distilled water with 3/4 teaspoon of epsom salt. Apply epsom salt solution using a dropper on floating type pellets or freeze dried krill. Keep soaking the pellets or freeze dried food until it won't absorb anymore. Feed this way exclusively for 5 days straight. You should start to see healing after the 5 day period.

I also doubt hith Steve. But I have used the ES soaked feed on Rock's recommendation with bad hith Oscars. Naturally, it helped greatly. Will only benefit Sarge, regardless of the cause of the dent. Still my favorite Oscar!


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