    A few months ago I bought a albino Oscar I just recently noticed the tips of his fans are turning black is this normal for albino Oscars?

    What's your ammonia at? Ammonia can burn the fins, gills, and bodies of the fish. Also I see you don't know about the nitrogen cycle, have you just not updated? If not, please read into it, it will be extremely helpful.

    I just haven’t updated lol and I’m not sure about the ammonia level but I just read that it may be a lutino and not an albino

    Oh that makes sense.... it still may be a good idea to check just in case. Good luck with your Oscar!

    I’m gonna check the ammonia but I think he may be lutino. Thanks for the input
