    My sucker fish always used to jump out of my aquarium and I always had to go running to pick them up, even though I had glass covering on it. to this day I still have no idea how they did it.

    Sorry to hear about your Oscar problems.. My Max (oscar) lived to be 9 years old.. I know it sounds silly but I cried when he passed away.. He had been such a big part of my life for 9 years.. (Navy) and when hubby would go out to sea, I would pick up all my critters and haul them all home for 3 months and then back home when hubby came back in.. Max actually had 2 tanks, one at my moms (for when we would visit) and the other at our home, Then he had his travel 5 gallon bucket for the LONNNNNG drive with his battery air pack.. lol..

    He was so funny, I actually had a night light in the room where the tank was because he would get scared in the dark at night and RUN to the other end of his tank.. GOD I just knew he was gonna break the glass. lol.. but as long as I had the night light on he was fine..

    I would say give this site a shot.. They seem to know LOTS about Oscars.. Waaa this thread makes me miss my Max and makes me want another one.. :(

    Ah the move? now that would be a reason he's stressed a bit. Try the stress coat and if you have to try feeding him some live feeder guppies or something just to see if he eats.
