Those are nematode worms that proliferate in aquariums when the fish are fed too much or are messy fish, like your Oscars. What, how much and how often are they fed?
Feed once a day no more than the fish can finish in under a minute. Do that for two weeks and keep the aquarium clean by siphoning debris and the worms should disappear.
The nematodes are harmless, if unsightly, creatures.
