My advise on food is frozen food or pellets, stay away from live food if you can help it because you will never get them back on prepared food after live(I use the term "never" loosely and not as an absolute). Be different and get the blue oscars if you can find them, they look awesome. You might look at Jack dempsies or jade Carpinthus as well or instead, both are much more beautiful fish.
Oscars are actually from south america. I believe the amazon river basin as well as other places.
