If its not one thing its another with him. Anyways I was watching him yesturday and today and I noticed he had a dot on his side. Just a random white dot so I kept my eye on him just in case. Well today I looked at him and his side where the cursed dot was was just off. To check and see how his fins were I use a flashlight to help see better and he was facing a different direction then normal and I noticed when I was look at him with the flashlight there was a spot on his side that was reflecting a bright green. So instantly I was thinking the hell is that?! When I took him out of the water into a cup I looked closer and it was almost if something got stuck between his scales but it wasn't green really more of the shade of is scales but a slight different color. Kinda like when you eat popcorn you get the shell stuck in your gums.
Soon I put him back in the tank and I noticed he would rub that one spot almost as if it was irritating him. I just glanced over and I seen that a bit of it had gotten off and was kinda hanging off him by like a thin line and it broke off when i scooped oscar into the cup. After it fell off and I put Oscar back in the tank I looked at it and it looked like a scale. Is it normal for a scale to shed off? I'm starting to think he scraped himself on something in the tank because it looks like theres a bit of redness next to it like he did and it scrapped off his scales. I took out his rocks and anything with a rough surface out just in case so all he has in there is his plant and a terra cotta pot now. Help anyone? Is this serious or am I just freaking out over a small cut like a mama?
