I feed mine guppies every now and again as a treat. I try to distract them and add the fish on the opposite end so they have time to hunt for their food. hope this helps :)

how old is he and how much and how often do you feed him its possible he simple isn't hungry if thats not the case you can give him a treat but id stay away from live aquatic food (fish shrimp etcetera) the chances of them transferring diseases or parasites is just too high in my opinion bugs like grasshoppers and mealworms are a much safer chose and you can get them from most pet stores another option is worms you can get them from most bait and tackle shops and thats just live food options theirs also store bought stuff like frezdried foods and so on

Don't dwell on what went wrong. Instead focus on what to do next

Yes. You can feed grasshoppers from outside, though wouldn't recommend if there has been any chemical spraying of your area recently. Live fish (like guppies or feeders) are not recommended because they can carry diseases and don't offer much nutritional value. Oscars are not piscivores by nature, in any case.
