I'd look into their fins and see if there are rays that seem to have been unusually shorten.
Use tweezers to remove the spine.

Got any melaleuca oil (tea tree oil)? If you keep putting that on it, generally the "sliver" of whatever it is will come to the surface. My hubby is a home builder and gets wood in his fingers fairly often, and this always works. I didn't know you could "pet" an oscar though!! Cool fish!!
