I have a little 6 x 8 feeder tank that sits inside of my aquarium. should I put the oscar in there so the red devils leave him alone?

Oscars are strong fish (even with the overbreeding we see here in the US). In the past I have tried almost anything I could to save fish that have degraded to this point. This includes holding the fish, cupped in my hand under water in a flow of clean water to oxygenate for hours. I have had no success that I can recall.

Water changes and protection from stress is the best I can recommend. I hope he beats the odds.

Edit: I guess at this point you could try anything. As long as the water is clean and the fish isn't stressed. I don't know about the garlic.
You're gonna need a bigger boat...
