Hey guys so I was looking at my O today and noticed some holes that I haven't seen before.

They are all over his head.

Is this HITH or just sensory pits? I'm hoping the latter but I think it might be HITH :(

Those are completely normal on Oscars...

Nothing to worry about!

Thank god! I was worried for a bit there.

I just never noticed them on my O before. I've seen his "nostrils" but never those pits all over.

Thanks!

Great question! Mine started getting these, too, and I was wondering what was going on with him. :pinch: I didn't think it was HITH, since his water is in great condition. Thanks!

We have had our Groucho (Tiger O) for over a year now...have watched him grow from 2 inches to pushing 11 inches! LOVE watching him swim around in his little 55 gal world. :lol: We also have a fancy goldfish and a black moor in a separate tank. We love our fishies!...[IMG]

Yes, this is quite normal. You normally emphasise the sensory pits when using the flash on the camera. These sensory pits often remind me of the old BCG test that we used to have at school, anybody remember?

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