Any, And I mean ANY, tard with a fishkeeping IQ barely above room temperature and a video camera can make a video of a terrible example of stocking and stick it on Youtube.
They are NOT examples to follow.
IMO those videos are only setting a terrible example, They are "How NOT to have your fish thrive IF they survive at all" videos.
Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

I would stay away from feeding mice (most fishes digestion is not optimal for mammalian meat) I've heard of people giving them as a treat, but also heard of them killing fish.
best food would be chopped up raw market shrimp. won't be messy like what you're feeding now. also hikari cichlid gold is a good pellet that isn't too messy.
what's your water change schedule like?Thar she blows!!!

It's best to feed oscars food they can swallow whole. You won't get blowouts through the gills, which is typically what happens because the pellet or jumbo stick is too large to swallow.

It was a sad day.I had to sell those big oscar fish and I was feeding them the pellets to.My 75 gallon was getting to small and the lfs guy said he would take them so I took them to him today.fishguy420
