Check the Ph of the water, which will require a Ph test kit from the tropical fish store. Also, did you dechlorinate the water? Did you allow the water in the bag to adjust to the water temperature in the tank before you let the Oscar out? Do you have a water heater, and is the water temperature at least 78 degrees?

It sounds like your fish is in shock. There are a number of things which can cause this, including those I have listed. If all of the above have been dealt with, ask the dealer what might be wrong.

What is a normal GFR?

A normal GFR or Glomerular Filtration Rate, is similar in both men and women. For adults it is between 100-130 ml/min/1.73m2. For children a GFR at 110 ml/min/1.73m2 is normal. GFR's are used to assess kidney damage or kidney disease. Normal GFR (glomerular filtration rate of the kidney) should be above 60.

How does blood pressure promote filtration of blood in the kidneys?

Blood pressure promotes filtration of blood in the kidneys by, generally, being greater in pressure than blood colloid osmotic pressure and glomerular capsule pressure which produces a net filtration pressure of about 10 mm Hg. Net filtration pressure forces a large volume of fluid into the capsular space. When blood pressure increase or decreases slightly, changes in the diameters of the afferent and efferent arterioles can actually keep net filtration pressure steady to maintain normal glomerular filtration. Constriction of the afferent arteriole decreases blood flow into the glomerulus, which decreases net filtration pressure. Constriction of the efferent arteriole slows outflow of blood and increases net filtration pressure.
