Agree with above, ain't no way around weekly water changes with one oscar ,never mind Two.
Should also mention that feeding live fish from pond, or feeder's from store, is very good way to introduce internal,external parasites as well as a host of other pathogens.(feeder's can be carrier's)
Some fishes are also rich in Thiaminase which actually helps deplete needed vitamins your Oscar needs.
Krill,chopped earthworms,cricket's,bit's of shrimp,small crayfish, and quality pellet food would be much more nutritional for the fish, and less need for De-worming.
Filter material in tanks holding these fishes needs to be cleaned regularly in old aquarium water you remove during weekly 50% minimum water changes, or in dechlorinated water.
Gravel vaccuming ,water changes,filter maint, on regular basis (not when YOU think it needs it) are mandatory for the health of these fishes if indeed fishes health is of primary concern.
