I cant access nor see any pics that show a problem. However, be aware of this... a 9in Oscar in 55g requires far more water changes than you are doing. You need an absolute minimum of twice a week at 75% or more each time. That would be just to maintain DECENT water. You may need to do every 2nd day to bring your water to healthy standards. How are you determining water quality is good?

if the live food is feeder fish, stop that. Worst thing you can give him. Your water cant be good, its not biologically possible given fish size, tank volume and small water changes. He wont die if you clean up his environment. Twice a week water changes, 75% per change. Ease into it so he slowly gets used to cleaner water. 50% every 3 days for 2 weeks, then more.
