If you remove the fish and just run the tank with the ammonia that's in there, it won't cycle. You need a constant supply of ammonia for extended periods of time. What is in there right now probably won't cut it. If you want to try to save the oscars you should start doing large water changes to reduce the amount of ammonia.
