My Oscar has a gouge/pit at the beginning of his left side lateral line. I'm not sure if it's just an accident that happens to be on the line or the beginnings of HITH/HLLE, there is no pitting on his face. His appetite is great and he is very active. Should I go to every 2-3 day wc as a precaution??

Tank: 55 gallon 1-2" oscar, 1-2" geo, 3- SD's (I know I'm overstocked)
Filtration: Sunsun canister- 395gph & whisper 60 HOB- 330gph
WC schedule: once a week 50%

Ammonia: 0
Nitrites: 0
Nitrates: 5ppm they never go above 40ppm

Not a very good video but if you look close you can see the spot

Are you sure he didn't bump himself???
If there is no head pitting, or erosion on the "nostrils" I would just keep an eye on it...

It very likely that he just bumped into something I am just being really cautious cause of the location and I am really attached to this fish already, his face and nostrils look good that's the only place
