Why is my baby Oscar doing this? All my water levels and everything are fine so I am very confused as to why he's like this?

fine water level is not good, we need data:
ammonia = ? nitrite =? Nitrate = ? pH=? temp=?

how long have you had your oscar? when was the tank set up?

I don't have a testing kit but when I went and got it tested today they said it's all good except the ph is about 7.6 and that it was lacking aquarium salt.
My other Oscar is doing perfect and has no issues.
I've had this Oscar only 2 days now and the tank was been setup since Tuesday and today being Saturday so 5 days, but I did have my last filter and decor from my last tank which had my Oscar in it to help set the bacteria in this new tank.

now, i am not surprised your fish is acting that way....
your tank is not fully cycled and the fish is sulking...
trying to conserved the strength to keep alive...
better do 25% w/c daily until the system is fully cycled....

perhaps, you may want to read tank cycling topics for more info.
