We have a 100g tank and an oscar who loves to redecorate and makes a mess of the tank. We have gravel and I created stacked Slate decorations but he broke those too. We don't have fake plants because he broke most. We are running out of ideas of what to put in that he won't ruin. Help

I don't know how to add a photo, but if someone tells me I'll take one of the tank

I still use fake plants and some other items like an alligator head, etc...the plants are cheap, and seem to give him something to do other than chase the SD's
He carries them the length of the tank sometimes and rolls the other items as well.
Seems to me he releases some aggression that way

I have a couple large rocks that he can get behind if he ever wants to hide. I have a fake plant weighted down by gravel rocks if he ever feels like tearing anything up. I have a couple flat-ish rocks in the event my "he" is a "she" and needs to do some instinctive breeding ritual. I've got a pea gravel substrate. It's not very visually impressive but it minimizes lost swim space due to a bunch of ornaments. It seems to serve him well.
