Hi! So some of you may know my Oscar Delta (he is mentioned in other forums I have made). Anyway this morning (quick disclaimer my Oscar DID NOT did) I was feeding the 130 (with delta) and delta has become a bit of a splashy feeder (he hits the water really hard creating a big splash) and will sometimes jump a little bit (which I try to discourage). And way the feeding flap I have is barely big enough for him to fit through but this morning he did fit through it and jumped clear out of the tank hitting one of my other aquariums lights before hitting the ground. He flopped around for about a minute before he stopped, once he stopped I grabbed a net and got him back in the tank. He got quite a few scratches and one big scratch but what I am most worried about is that when he was in the ground he started to bleed from his gills. Now this generally isn’t good right? He isn’t bleeding (that I can see) not that he is in the tank, but should I be worried about him? I am going to monitor him all day today and probably am gonna do a water change but other than that there isn’t anything I can really do. He isn’t laying on the bottoms he is kinda just hovering in a general area of the tank. He seems to be stressed but not to horribly. Any recommendations? Ima keep the water super clean so that his side doesn’t get infected as he did retain a large scrape down his side, but he has had those before (from the other fish before the pecking order was asstablished) and he always heals fine. Here are a few photos of the feeding flap he fit through, and a couple of him.
