When did you get the oscar that is not doing well? If it's only been a few days, that behavior can be normal for oscars. They can sulk for days after a move.

To provide help we'll need to have more information. Please tell us the tank size, how long you've had each oscar, how long you have had the tank and filter(s), and the water parameters for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate if you have a test kit.

Also, a picture or video would be extremely helpful. If you don't know how, just ask.

When I got my Marshall last year, he sulked for days. At one point I literally thought he was dead and when I went to remove him from the tank he took off swimming. I screamed my head off. The guys above will tell you what you need to know once you provide the needed info. Good luck!
