You can overfeed so much food that it pollutes your tank. But most fish usually will stop after they get a bit of food. (not bettas, they keeps eating and eating) I dont know if there is a specific amount of food you should be feeding.

Feeders? As in feeder fish?
You shouldnt be feeding those as a stable diet. Especially if you bought them, you can use them as a treat once a month, but the fry should be your own bred fry so you know there isnt any diseases in them. Also the provide no nutiritonal value to your fish's diet. So its a waste to feed them actually.

im pretty sure that due to oscars digestive track they actually arent built to digest live food. its bad for them and can cause internal problems, for the most part they are vegitarians since they have the digestive track for it. as far as begging goes whenever anyone is next to my tank everyone goes to the top and nips at the top of the water even if you just fed them 5 mins ago. some fish learn how to beg some dont. oscars are known for their personality and begging.
