boegey created the topic: Dislocated jaw

My albino oscar has a dislocated jaw it happened when I fed a goldfish to my two oscars and my bigger one the tiger ate it easily but the albino was not big enough and tried to eat it and hurt it's jaw this was a few months now and it's still not getting better his head looks dislocated from the body at the bottom he is only about 7 inches... What should I do can they live like that or is he in pain?? He eats fine the only thing Ive noticed different is that he breathes very heavily and fast :(

My oscar got something stuck in his gills a while back and i couldnt work out what it was. His mouth was always open but he stil managed to eat. Eventually i had to net him, put him in a wet teatowel and take a closer look. It was a rubber disc from the back of an internal filter he had found in the gravel so got it out with a pair of tweezers. Put him back and 2 days later he had found another piece so out he came again, no matter how mant times you filter through the gravel the oscar will find bits and pieces left in there.
