Unhappy Scratched Tiger Oscar? Seeking advice

Hello all!
New to fish keeping and I have a little tiger Oscar who has been home for a week and now appears to be quite scratched? I think itís scratches but again, newer to the hobby so Iím seeking advice because Iím not sure . Tank levels are great , heís in there with one other tiger Oscar but I donít see any bullying occurring but Iím also not watching 24/7 .
I will include photos but they arenít the easiest to photograph and my camera isnít the greatest
Any advice or guidance greatly appreciated

Hello, oscar fish are clumsy. If there is something to bump they will bump it. So if you have anything sharp in tank you need to sand down or remove it. I had the suction clips that hold my heater that had ruff edges on the tips & she managed to hurt her self on those. Had to remove those & replace w/a cover.
They are really fast growers I got mine at 3/4inch & now at 4mo she's at 5+inch. It's recommended that they be fed 3x a day if possible. Hope this helps!!!!! Click image for larger version
