 I  have  a  155L  tank.  I  have  recently  got  two  tiger  Oscars  (  about  7  to  8  inches).  The  other  fishes  in  the  tank  are  two  silver  dollars.  One  of  the  Oscars  did  not  eat  for  the  last  five  days  but  has  started  eating  cichlid  pellets  today.  It  is  chased  around  by  the  other  Oscar  and  hides  in  one  corner  of  the  tank.  It  rarely  comes  out.  It  has  lost  its  black  colour  also  and  has  turned  slightly  grey.  PLease  advise  whether  to  give  any  medicine....

 What  is  your  water  change  schedule  and  filter  for  the  tank?  Seems  to  me  that  either  the  fish  was  weak  at  the  time  of  purchase,  or  it  has  become  ill  due  to  some  tank  condition.  Oscars  are  usually  robust  and  can  handle  a  lot  of  abuse  imo.  Is  your  fish  showing  any  other  signs?  Such  as  spots  or  wounds  or  laboured  breathing?

 Oscars  are  hardy,  in  my  exprience.  I  just  think  your  tank  is  a  bit  small  for  Oscars.  Maybe  it's  fine  for  their  current  size,  but  they'll  grow,  and  you  should  have  twice  that  tank  size  for  them.

 Having  a  pair  of  Oscar  is  never  a  good  idea.
 The  bigger  one  will  not  let  smaller  one  to  live,  he  will  be  harassed  to  death.
 Also  the  tank  is  too  small  to  give  them  space.
 Take  out  the  weaker  one,  there  is  no  other  way.
 The  only  way  you  can  keep  them  together  is  to  buy  4-5  very  young  oscars  and  let  them  grow  together,     that  way  they  might  live  peacefully  together.  But  you  cannot  be  sure  even  then.
