Hello thank you for your reply.

It's the single one, but I do have another handle as only one is broken.

I'm thinking of just ditching/selling as is since it is an old model and is prone to leaking (solved but still annoying).

I can't say for sure as it's been a few months now.  He's fine, sore is gone and nothing else has surfaced.
My guess it is he likely rubbed his face on a rock chasing a minnow (I have a few lava rocks for the bacteria aspect in the tank).  Aside from what was seen in the image, gills were good, breathing was good, very good appetite and very active (not laying around listlessly) - to him, it was like nothing was wrong.

He's good now, same ole Frank but I appreciate your comment. Of course it's very important to keep on eye on water conditions.

Oscars are one cichlid that can overwhelm a tank due to their size and food cumsumption. They do not like high nitrates. It is important to know what your water perameters are from one water change to the other in order to gauge if your water change schedule is sufficient. My guess is maybe but in my opinion if your changing less then half then your water over time will deteriorate.

They are few and far between - I'd agree. The last books I purchased were directly from the authors (Anton Lamboj, Rachel O'Leary, Oliver Lucanus). Magazines like TFH and Amazonas are available digitally for modest subscription fees (I bought TFH for 1$, 2 years in a row). Sadly the OVAS library has been dismantled.
Do we now just google for direct answers, rather than study the material? Are we so quick to forget the methods and the madness that has advanced the aquarium hobby to where it is today? I think the vlog-age has us all subscribed to more YouTube channels than magazines (not a bad thing when the very same people are publishing books). On the plus side, I enjoy watching a tank being built, a product in action, or some underwater footage of natural habitat in what seems to be a more realistic application on video than in a magazine.  There are some cool aquarium/ aquascape related pod casts available too.
If there's a book you're looking for - ask on here, it may be on someone's library shelf.

Whatever ever happened to tropical fish/ aquarium books?  Angry ( Is print dead?)
I have been collecting them for a good 40 years plus now and they are near impossible to get.
I used to love going to big Al's on pay day and getting a few every two weeks.
Bought a ton of Amazon/eBay but now they get noting new.
Looks like I got to get a tablet now if I want something new to read in bed (not the same but what's a guy to do?).

Does it use the older single clip?

like this:https://i.imgur.com/9jTgMtb.png

or does it use the newer double clip design?

like this:https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51HTR8RQ96L._SY463_.jpg

If it's the former, and you have the tools to make your own 3D print file, I can lend you my temporarily out of service 404 so you can make a copy Smiley
