My Oscar has just recently started spitting his food out. He will chew it up and then spit some out and then most will come out of his gills. I feed Hikari gold which he normally eats. Any idea what's going on?

Welcome to OFL. Spewing out the gills means he cant swallow the pellets without grinding them up. The throat is far smaller than the mouth. Switch to a smaller pellet and dont give him so many at once


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

is this the same fish in your other post that has HITH?
if so, that is one sign that your fish is having a problem.
better c heck the water parameters.... and tried to starve your
fish for 2 to 3 days... this will lessen the bioload and enhance the appetite .
