5 pairs of Oscars will need 1000 gallons minimum! No lie. I am not sure how many gallons are in your tank but them Oscars will be 12 inches by Christmas.

1.Both tanks are too small for them when fully grown, aim for a way bigger tank!

3. Your food selection is good.

4. Lighting is not important in an oscar tank, all it does is let you see the fish, so whatever lighting you want will do fine

5. Ph is good, as long as it doesn't change too much. Nh4, N02, N03, and pH are the most important params. If possible, try and get the kh/gh tested occasionally.

Those guys will need a bigger tank... remember.

8) First, respectfully, the assuption of pairs at 1" is a bit of a stretch. It'll be some time before they actually pair off (mate wise) if at all.
Next, the five foot tank w/ gravel if properly cycled & adequately filtered will suffice temporarily while they are juvies but by adolesent, you will have to downsize the number or upgrade the tank size & filtration. 400/500g min. will be necessary.
The diet is adequate. Just make 75/80% of the diet quality pellets & the rest supplements & treats. (Hikari is a good choice).
The lighting is subjective w/ oscars. No specific requirement. As for the Ph, as long as it is stable & consistent they will adapt & be fine. "T"
