    Looks like they could use some fungal meds.

    They look as if they have been struggeling, and now their slight injuries caught some kind of fungus.

    I agree with Lady Hobbs. A really harsh water change could help the fish, cause the change lessens the free drifting fungus spores in the water.

    Oscars can be prone to velvet, which this looks like.

    Two things need to happen. One is to treat for the disease. The other is to deal with the stressor(s). For fish to get sick the disease needs to be present AND something needs to be stressing them. With big dirty fish like this, without knowing anything else, I would guess water quality is an issue, possibly other stressors as well.

    The other stuff is fungus, most likely there is extra waste in the tank that is rotting, this can cause low water quality.
