    About a week ago I saw this little cute albino red shinning between some common tiger oscars in a dirty LFS in a dirtier tank, add to it Ich and a hollow belly maybe because of being kept hungry for long time.
    got him for $2 and brought it home in the quarantine. now hes in my 40g with parrots and rainbows. at least its a better home for some months. hes 2 and half inch long now.

    eats well and acts normal but his belly looks a bit deformed. theres a small hump on the anal area. it occurred after the first feeding. seems when I started feeding him after being kept hungry for a long time his intestines got extended unusually :( I think I should feed him less than normal for a while to help him get better.

    also he has got some blacks on the fins and tail edges during this week, I have no experience with albinos but I think its not unusual as I've seen an albino red with black edges on the Hikari cichlid Bio-gold+ cover! lol

    here are some of his pictures.

    He looks good. Hope his belly problem is not a serious one and he'll be OK.

    Nice Oscar! What are doing about the stomach problem?
    Are you feeding it anything to soften its stools,it may make it easier on him.Don't peas work for that?

    I think that was a mistake to feed him like normal. poor O was hungry for a long time and suddenly eating a lot of food caused this problem. I should have fed him gradually.
    now hes in with some other fish and its hard to prevent him eat much! but I will try to control his diet to make him compress back his stomach. and I will try pea, it may help. thanks.
