The Betta is dead if it's with any of the others for very long!
Keep ocars by themselves or with other large cichlids only!

If the tanks big enough and the sharks are roughly the same size as oscar it should be fine. I would say good by to the betta though.

Fun To Watch

I agree with two of the three responses above. The betta will not last long in the tank. Oscars are carnivorous and will eat anything that is protien rich (other fish) that will fit in its mouth. On the plus side it is fun to watch an oscar or any fish eat smaller fish. So my vote is keep the betta in the tank and wait for the oscar to get big enough to eat it.
