Need recommendation for new hiding spot

I have a 75 gal with 2 10"-12"tiger oscars, a 10" pleco & 6" green convict. The oscars are bullies and will chase the convict around when he comes out. He's moved up to the largest boat I have, but is quickly outgrowing it. I need something a little bigger for him but it has to be something that the big guys can't get into or knock over easily. Anyone have thoughts? I was thinking of putting in a glass fish bowl and propping it up with some slate tiles, but I'm worried the oscars will knock it over and trap him. I've checked all the local pet stores and have searched online and am just not seeing anything. So, I need help with some creative ideas.

I don't have anywhere to move him. I have a 30 gal but it has gourami's. Kinda wish I wouldn't have sold my other 30 gal Maybe this just means I need to buy a new tank! I was wanting a new 90-100 gal. Lol

Thanks!!

Best bet is buying a 6ft tank. 4ft of lateral space is very limited, especially when it comes to territory with fish as big as your O's

Unfortunately a new tank just isn't in the budget right now.

Not a great pic, but you can see a bit of his face sticking out from the boat.
