Sorry to hear about you Oscar.
Have you tried treating it with anything yet? How long has he been showing these syptoms?



Here is a really good site for Oscar info.

Also here is another site that might be useful when it comes to fish diseases and treatments.

Are you sure it's a fungus? What color is it and does it look cottony or slimy?

Have you done a water change? That's the first thing you'll want to do. It's hard to recommend any medications without knowing exactly what's going on but if he's as bad as he sounds than maybe pick up some Binox. It's a powder by the company Jungle that will treat most bacterial and fungal infections. It's VERY strong so you may not want to give him the full dose at first. I also prefer to mix it in with some water and drip it into the tank slowly. I've had excellent results using it.

Good luck with him!
