Welcome! :19:
What size tank?
What are the parameters exactly?
Waterchange the ammonia down to 1ppm immediately and take a look at the fishless cycling stickies and the e-book. You many also want to pick up nitrite and nitrate tests, you are going to need them next.
Test the ammonia and water change it down to 1ppm everyday for now.

By the way, if you post questions in the appropriate sections you will get answers much faster

Welcome to the site. There is a link http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/ebook.html here that explains how the cycling process goes. If the tank wasn't cycled before you added the oscars you'll want to stay on top of water changes and watch the water quality closely. Get a test kit if you can.
