thank you all for giving me very helpful insight on the situation. It is greatly appreciated!
Thanks for clarifying what your intentions here are. Oscars I find to be more of "opportunists", meaning they will take a meal when it's available. I would not recommend adding any bite size snacks to the tank if your oscars are considerably large.
The problem with adding any new fish to this environment would be
B: large and well established aggressive fish
Is the Texas the only fish you are willing to take out to make room for more?
