just an idea
 
when i kept large oscars i found they were very inteligent and got bored easy,
so i came up with the idea of a treat ball, as i own a rabbit she has one of those balls you knock food out of,
so i sterilised it and put pellets and meat and tasty stuff in, and dropped it into the tank after abit they realised how to get food out and loved it!

also plastic t-spoons with treats on for little guys the work out how to knock the food off
hope this helps

cute idea! and yes, i have read that oscars require some stimulation after awhile. and that the introduction of a playball into their tank will eventually liven them up a little.

That's an excellent idea sazzy.

I've heard of people using ping-pong balls for the oscars to play with in the past, but never using food inside. :)
