I don't have the answer but you are going to be told you are overstocked!

Currently what size are your fish?

Could you do a water test & give us the results, ammonia, nitrite & nitrate.

naja or iridescent sharks have very poor vision as is, they are also very skittish and nervous, perhaps it got spooked by something. also those "sharks" can get up to 4' or 120cm so you will have to eventually rehome them. also a tank upgrade would benefit your oscars as 80g really is not enough to keep up with their growth.

do a watertest for ammonia, nitrites and nitrates and see if something's not right. you should have 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite and a max of 30ppm nitrates for your fish to remain healthy long term.
