    My Oscar fish(3-4inches) just jumped from the tank and banged its head on the tank roof...from that time it has lost its control and is not able to swim. Wat should I do

    Welcome to FishLore!

    I dont think there is much you can do, but I would imagine he will be okay eventually.

    Mine also likes to jump. I had to cut a whole out of my lid because he would try to jump out when I feed him. He still tries to jump but just smashes into the lid. Heres a picture of him missing some scales because of jumping.

    I think that your oscar just got banged up a little... wait a while and see if it gets better.

    Oscars will heal very quickly w/ no meds, as long as the water is clean! Mr. Wiggles also jumps a lot. He'll float sideways for 3-5 minutes, before returning to his normal self .
