    Good point buddha, I know a guy in town who had a large male frontosa do the same thing. He thought the fish was a goner, but it pulled through & healed up on its own.

    Lots of driftwood in the tank and some rocks so that's a possibility for sure

    My psittacus recently ripped its whole side open on a piece of branchy driftwood. It had a huge vertical gash down the back of his eye that went from near his dorsal fin to his gills. The flesh was exposed and you could actually see inside the fish. He didn't eat for two days, but I started doing large daily water changes to keep the tank really clean and he healed on his own over a week or so. There's still a needle-sized hole behind his eye that refuses to close up, but otherwise he's completely healed and acts normal again. Maybe your oscar experienced something similar.

    Came home today to take pictures / video of this hole, and it has already closed itself up! Guess it must not have been terribly major, because his demeanor never changed
