Carbon can be the cause, in rare cases. You are right to attribute his diet to be the main cause.

If it is 200 gallons no problem, if it's 200 liters then no. Try to get the other two dimensions for us.

+1. Even if it's just the measurements of the width length and height we can figure out how many gallons it is.

I believe you when you say its 200 gallons, but usually a tank that size is longer than 4'. Can you give us the full dimensions? Length, width, and hieght? That would help in stocking suggestions...

That means you probably only have a tank capable of holding ONE JUVENILE Oscar and nothing more. As an adult single Oscar, or with any other fish, you would need a bigger tank.

If you do get a bigger tank, compatible fish in my experience are: Silver Dollars (by far the best tankmate I have found for mine), Plecos (if larger than the Oscar by a long way) and fully grown Convict Cichlids (just one).

200 UK or US gallons?

1 Imperial gallon = 1.20095042 US gallons

I would have actually thought it difficult to find a 4 foot 200 gallon tank...

NOthing to be sorry about! JUst curious about the other dimensions. Oscars need room to swim. When they get larger, they do much better in a tank that is longer. A 6' tank is usually the norm that they do well in.
