Yes, your oscar has shown it does not like the new fish. How big is your tank?

Unfortunately 40 gallons falls slightly short of the minimum size tank for one adult Oscar, you need 55 gallons, that does not include adding any tank mates. So the any advice we can really give you is firstly, rehome the other fish, or rehome the Oscar and keep the fish that is okay in the 40 gallon tank, or get a much bigger tank ASAP. You're in a situation that can only be rectified by making some drastic changes.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)
