I have a problem with one of my Kids.....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One of my Oscar's went blind in both eyes not just one but both .......
He's the only sick one in my tank out of all the inhabitants. because of this my irradecent shark over eats and looks like she's going to burst so I feed them all just once a day... I have to let the pellet touch his head between his eyes so he knows that it is food and he'll eat , just like teaching a dog a new trick at least I can get him to eat cause he hasn't eaten any live food in a week at least...... I feed them Minows due to the parasites that goldfish carry
at one point he was laboring to breath but its just about normal now and he let's me feed him by hand one stick at a time 8)
I wonder if he'll learn other tricks besides eating...................

Thank You in advance !!!!!!!!!!!

You Guys are the Best !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love to see them shoot thru the water stream and do a skid stop.... It looks like they are drag racing to the other end of the tank ....... It's poetry in motion watching in on the life of Aquatic residents ........
