What kind of fruits can you feed your oscars and have it be good for them??
And does fruit actually contain a good level of nutrients for the Oscar or is it more of a better tasting treat ?? Maybe for natural for them , idk? Anyone able to give me some information on that?

Fruits are excellent that's what oscars often eat in the wild.
Fruits are not very high in protein (although they contain many proteins) but that's not a problem since almost all oscars are overfed by their owners, liver fat deposit is the main problem aquarium oscars have rather than lack of proteins. Besides fruits will help prevent constipation and bloat, they are rich in vitamins your oscar needs, go for it, just stay away from oily high fat fruits like avocados.
Vegetables are also excellent foe your oscar

Lol bananas are one fruit I won't give my oscar anymore. Although he eats it, so much flies out of his gills I'm not even sure he gets any. VERY messy.
