Bummer! I don't have Oscars and am not an expert, but it were my fish, I'd do daily water changes in a tank by himself, if possible, keep the lights off in the tank and in the room, and use Melafix to help healing. Good luck!

Which tank was the oscar in? What size is it? What are the other inhabitants?

How is the oscar now?

As you've found out, you're going to need to secure the tank. These guys are notorious for doing this. They can even bump the plastic hoods and escape.

he is alot better today.
i did put in some melafix last night and this morning along with some aquarium salt last night
he normally does do that except he wanted the jumbo krill that was floating.

he is in the 125g tank with all the other cichlids. he pretty much rules the tank
no one ever bothers him

i called to see how he is doing. and looks like he is back to his old friendly ways just little worse for the wear

will keep you updated if you wish
