I say 9.5 because I have a 1/2 gallon vase in it with a Betta. Would three-four Mollies be okay in this tank to produce feeders for my Oscar?

I'm kinda new to fish tanks but i think you should get 1male 2females and a breeder trap. Get loads of "fine" leaved plants as hiding places that sould save some money down the road

Well, Mollies can grow up to 4 inches and are really more suitable for a tank of at least 30 gallons... also, you would have to have a LOT of mollies in order to maintain a steady supply for your oscar. Maybe you could consider holding feeder goldfish in there? The housing would be temporary :s so they won't suffer too much from the cramped conditions... better than keeping 4 mollies in there for their whole lives IMO. Another option is to buy a handful of feeder guppies and let them colonize the tank. Bearing in mind that it is going to be a while before the population is steady enough to feed them to your oscar.

Guppies would be totally fine, in fact you can probably grow your population from feeder guppies sold in most lfs.
