Oscar are notorious interior decorators. Gravel, rocks, plants will all be rearranged to suit them. Frankly I was impressed with how much and how big an item my Oscar used to move.

That being said you may want to look for very hardy low light plants you can attach to rocks or wood so they will survive the moving.

Anubias and Java Fern. They come in several shapes and sizes.

I should have said this but the oscar won't stay in there long it's like a growing tank but in the future I'm gonna put Africans like electric yellows and maybe something else don't know yet if you have a suggestion they have to be passive and stay small

If you are thinking about Africans, I'd pass on the plants.

I should not generalize the Africans; was thinking of the lake types. Kribensis stay somewhat smaller and are fine with plants.
