Listing Oscar

1512 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  gr
I've had a bright orange Oscar for 5 months now living with 2 green terrors. He's grown well but in the last couple of days has taken to sitting on the bottom listing to one side. Also one of his eyes is bulging much more then the other. We've changed the water and nitrate levels are low. Any one got any suggestions? Is it terminal?

Sounds like pop-eye, in which case you may need medication. Do you feed him feeder fish at all? Do you have a pic and the exact water parameters?
Thanks for that. No we feed him Tetra Doromin. I can't supply a photo but will come back with the water parameters when my "fish monitor" gets back.
Someone recomended antibiotics??
