As of today my Oscar will not go to the left side of the tank. Not even for food So that says a lot. The water parameters are perfect, I checked them and plus I did a huge water change yesterday. The temperature is consistent through the whole tank, it's 82 degrees. The only thing different with the tank is the tree in the right corner and that doesn't bother him. He actually seems to like it he hangs around it a lot. Also I put a new background on because I took mine off about 2 weeks ago but I don't think a background would bother him would it? That's the only things I can think of. Maybe he's just in a mood or something, anyone else ever have a fish do this? And he also acts normal but it's like like he won't cross the half way point of the tank.

I have no idea why the Oscar is avoiding one side of the tank. To be honest, I shouldn't worry too much about it, he'll probably be okay tomorrow, let us know what happens and how he is behaving in the next 12 hours or so

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

The moods they get in are very unpredictable. My Lutino spent about a week staring at the heater for hours at a time and now she doesn't even act like it's there. I wouldn't sweat it.

That's called 'there's a change in my environment and it's scary so I'm going to sulk'-itis.

Don't worry about it. He'll get over it eventually.

+1. With the change in background he's probably uneasy about venturing too far. I'm sure he'll be back to himself in no time.

I think he's playing me big time lol if im in the room he won't go to the other side not even for food. But a couple times tonight I walked in the room and he was on the left side and would rush over to the other side but if I try to get him to go to the left side he will not go. These fish are unbelievable, he surprises me everyday Ahahah until someone owns a fish like an Oscar they will never believe how smart a fish can actually be. They can kind of make you feel stupid lol

That's hilarious. :laugh: He's just playing you. :laugh:

I can't remember ... have you posted a video of your oscar? When he starts acting like himself again we'd enjoy seeing a video of him.
