noticed that that it has spots on both eyes. Not white but definitely spots. The eyes are clear except the little spots. I started using salt to see if that would help. Really good water quality. Tanks in good shape

good coloring of oscar you have there!

the pictures shows that your oscar had been exposed to some bad water condition.
those craters in the head means scars from HITH.

the spot on the eyes can be just a white spot, an early stage of amonia burn...

tank in good shape and water is in good quality means nothing in this hobby.
you need to know the level of ammonia, nitrite, nirate, pH, and temp.

clear water doesn't mean good quality.

something is missing with the parameters...
0 nitrate means tank water is not yet properly cycled.
but given the fact that your fish had recovered from HITH
he/she must be strong....

if those white spot is not an scars, it will be gone sooner.
what type of test kit you have there? it must be the liquid type

Yes I’m using api freshwater master test kit. I do 20-25 gallon water change once a week and use a mini vac once or twice a week to remove fish debris. So that might explain no nitrate. The tank has been set up for over a year. 118 gallon 24 x 36x 31
