Hi All,
My Oscar (Picklehead) is 1 year 10 months old, 10" long and seems just as happy as ever.

I just noticed though today that he had these spots on his head. They look like water-spots on a glass that just came out of a dishwasher. There are a few of them.

Any ideas, good bad, nothing to worry about? There's a 6" Severum in the tank and she seems just fine. There's no substrate in this tank, just water, these two fish, filters and that's it. pictures of Picklehead's spots

Notice the spots just in front of his dorsal fin and on the sides. He doesn't seem to be bothered by them nor is he rubbing up against anything. He does like me to pet him though, so I wonder if something rubbed off on him? For instance, I will put my hand in the water and he will come over and lightly rub up against his side or pet the top of his head with my finger or let me rub his belly. But no spots on his belly so far as I can see.

I've got to be honest with you, I can't really see anything on your Oscar that gives me any cause for concern. I certainly can't see any signs of hole in the head disease. And as for the spots, I don't really see what you are seeing. See what other people say. Maybe you could get some better photos if it's still worrying you?

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

You are likely seeing his sensory pits, which become more defined with age. All normal. Your Oscar looks fine, very well in fact.


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

Thank you. I think you're right. I don't see them today. Just an over-reacting owner.



Cheers all,
