Get a lobster from supermarket and thow in there. J/K get the biggest one you can get. Oscars are very oppertunistic on getting food. My oscar whould suck the snails out of the shell.

ive never had oscars, but i always thought they were less likely to kill anything that got in the tank. Ive got a small crayfish (electric blue lobster) in with my red bellied piranas, and hes doing just fine. At first the piranas were curious they went and bit him a couple times, but he fought them off, and now the piranas just annoy him, but they dont get very far. the crayfish sure does fight back. Im sure if i dont feed my piranas enough, or later on when they get bigger they will deffenitely go after him, but for now they leave him alone. but i also have a pretty badass lobster, he messed up the other lobster it was with nicely.
