omg..Im so worried. My oscar has been looking sick. His skin is supposed to be black but now its a cloudy gray color and he has specks of white flakes on him.

I just saw him have a seizure of some type..or that is what it looked like.. he was shaking and diggin his face into the gravel and now his tail is up in the water and his face is down and it doesnt look like he is breathing but i thought he wouldnt be dead until he floats to the top.

im scared i dont want him to die. hes less than 4 years old. I have a white albino oscar too and i dont want him to get affected by this.

every five minutes my black oscar's tail flaps one time. so what do I do? I dont want him to die!!!!!!

I wish I could help you, but I have no information regarding your fish. It is really hard to diagnose fish without actually seeing them. And I don't like to recommend any medications without actually knowing what the problem is.
