Goodness gracious....not sure who is worse, the fish or the kids!! As you can see on attached pic, my O cut his head on a plastic hollow log. Yes, the log is now a goner! But do I need to do anything? It just happened about 30 min ago. It never bled & the boo boo is only half the length in the photo...the other half is the flap of skin that lifted. He seems to be acting fine, just worried about infection. I had also just moved him to a tank that was recently treated with AP general cure all x2. Any suggestions?

i wouldnt worry about moving him from his tank, just make sure you keep good clean water and it will heal up in no time at all :)

I am not an expert on this but as I have read in the forum and the articles here, Oscars do injure them self in the tank time to time and as long as you have a good water quality they be fine, and get healed very fast and you don’t have to do anything.

My other hobby is photography check some of my work on www.flickr.com/1snowboarder/

Yeah nothing to worry about, they always bump and scratch themselves and will heal really fast in good healthy water :)

My fish has had far worse than that on several occasions. He will be fine.

No Cebosound..it is not u!! Haha
Matter fact, that mouth is what got him his name. I LOVE Family Guy. If u have ever watched it, theres the episode where Peter ate so many hamburgers he had a stroke. His mouth drooped. So when I got him, ipicked him bc I felt bad....then named him Peter. I know, iknow....not the nicest story but it happened! I apologize in advance for anyone I offended!!! I think he got attacked as a baby....he actually has a scar it seems above lip. :P
