I used this to cure my Oscar when he got hole in the head. Tell me if you have had success with it. And any other cures for it that you have had success with.

Step 1: If possible Hospitalize the Oscar
Step 2: turn the temp to 82-84 degrees F
step 3: Add some aquarium salt
step 4: add a broad ranged medicine like tetracyne
step 5: feed a broad range of foods becuase Hole in the head is caused by lack of nutrients

I posted an article I wrote that is now a sticky in the diseases section on HITH and HLLE. I suggest everyone check it out.

Should I post it here too?

When I saw the article posted here, as well, I unstickied it there. I will sticky it yet again but wonder if this needs to here twice.

We can just let it go and see?

I just want to make sure the article isn't overlooked.

Please read through the article everyone, I think it should be very helpful.
