Stumpy spends much of his time attacking his heater, and filters. Is this normal O behavior or could their be something wrong?
Ty for any advice.

Perfectly normal. Oscars generally try to push around everything in the tank. They are serious decorators. You may want to put a guard on the heater


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

Depends what kind of heater you have. Some have guards specifically designed for them. Plenty of generic ones out there. Amazon or Ebay. Make your own with a piece of pvc pipe. Fish hitting the heater isnt a real big deal unless they are really hammering on it. Dont want it broken, may shock the fish, risk losing water temp, $$$ out of your wallet. Depending on your filter intakes, you could maybe cable tie the heater to one of those

Great idea. I'll just strap it to the filter downspout
