So i noticed a small pale grey patch behind my oscars eye. His a normal Tiger Oscar so the patch stands out very much. I didn't notice it this morning but i was in a rush then. I normally do a 50% water change once a week but i was 3 days late this time. When i noticed it i did an emergency 50% water change but didn't have time to take the water perimeters, i'll do them once i finish work and try to take a pic as well. It looks similar to HITH photos online but only ONE patch not multiple. The temperature is currently on 26 degrees celsius. His appetite is fine, he doesn't refuse food he gobbles everything up like he normally does. Otherwise he looks completely fine. I read that HITH can be cured by water maintenance but does that mean i need to change the water more often then a large one once a week? Can i do multiple smaller ones each week to achieve the same affect?

HITH could not happen over night or in just 1 week ..
it can develop over time when exposed to bad water for too long.
there are time a gash or scrape may happen when the fish hit
something sharp or hard... considering you had done water change,
i am sure it will heal in time.

try to openan account in photobucket...it is free and use the
link for posting pics....
