Sunken belly Oscar

Hi!

Came home after a trip and noticed one of my gourami's has died again. I believe my Oscar killed him.

Noticed my Oscar has a rather sunken belly. He however was extremely hungry, and hasn't been fed for 3 days. Could it be an empty belly causing it, or does it always mean parasites?

He is acting normal.

Thanks


Edit: A201 are you still the expert to shamelessly tag? ;)

He might be a bit better today, but hard to say. Eating normally. Havent seen any poop yet, so can't give details on that.

Is it normal for that part of the belly to sink in if he's hungry?

Is this something that’s suddenly appeared? Or has it been like that for weeks? More pics would help.

Not really sure. Haven't noticed it before.
Think he has gotten a bit thicker after 3 days of 150% feedings :)
