So when I go to sleep, I turn the tank lights on, and feed my TOC, named Apollo. Recently, however, he has gone on a sort of rampage; dragging plastic plants around the cage, trying to eat rocks, and moving decorative shells. I did a lot of research on Oscars before I bought one for my 13th birthday, but never did I see in my research, or in his behavior that he did this. Please help me know what is going on!

hahaha... welcome to the oscar fish world...
that is their true character... he/she will re-arrange the tank the way he/she like it.. LOL!
try to put your hand inside the tank... chances are... he/she will attack your hand too...
just keep the water in good condition, give him/her varied foods... and enjoy the crazy action...

btw... we love pictures...

Yep. Oscars like to decorate their own tank unfortunately lol. I'd steer clear of real plants. You will forever be replacing them. I've once woken up with a fake plant on the the floor with an oscar laying next to it. Luckily it hadn't been there long and it survived the ordeal.
