Today morning I noticed that my albino copper Oscars lips looked a little weirder than usual. I fed it along with the other fishes and it was eating normally. It s tankmates are 2 albino pacus,2 black tiger oscars and 1 other albino Oscar. There are also 2 gold severums aswell l. There are other fishes but they aren't the aggresive kind. Looking at the pictures can you tell me if it's something I should be worried about?

Is it anything I should be worried about. Is there anything I can do about it?

Definitely dislocated. Usually the fish should be able to get it back into position by themselves either with the next meal or by yawning. If not it's likely just a cosmetic problem, unless it has serious problems feeding due to it.

Hello Mathew. I would keep an eye on it. Make sure he is doing OK with it. What size tank do you have all your fish in?
