OK, here's my experience with HITH. Two of my oscars had a deep hole on the middle of their foreheads and it was obviously HITH. I tried everything: changing water often, enriched diet, removing carbon. Nothing seemed to work ... until I finally relented and dropped tablets treating Hexamita and Spironucleus in. Within a week I saw the holes slowly starting to close and now they are completely closed! This article said Hexamita is largely debunked but I beg to differ here. If your oscars have HITH I highly going to your pet shop and getting those tablets. I got the Tank Buddies Parasite Clear which states: "Parasite Clear removes external and internal parasites from tropical fish including protozoans, flukes, lice, anchor worms and flagellates such as hexamita or spironucleus which cause hole-in-the-head disease." I don't believe a lot of manufacturers' claims but I believe at least this one.

No one really knows everything about HITH. So when your fish have got it you got to try most of the common solutions and hope one works

I can't get no sleep

Just to add to Thomas' view about the Tank Buddies - we find them here in South Africa as well and with all their products I have had good success. Fortunately I did not need serious medicine yet, but have a few of their tablets at hand just for incase. Thanks Thomas.
