If the Oscar is small, the pellets could be too large for it's jaws to crush or grind the pellets. Could also help to soak the pellets in a cup of aquarium water for a couple minutes before offering them to soften them up. Would try other foods as well along with vegetable based foods. Maybe a pea or two once or twice a week.
