What have you fed the Oscar recently?
Is the poop stringy
how is the fish acting
What is you maintenance routine and fish diet like if you have HITH returning, could you post your water readings, filtration along with tank size and occupants

Readings look good some O's just act weird at times I have a lute that gets a little strange once in a while. A 75 is a little tight for two O's but you should be ok if you keep up with the water changes. Do both O's have white poop or is it just the one? If both it's probably due to what you feed them. I think your probably ok as long as it isn't stringy. If it's stringy it could be internal parasites.

Try a few foods from the food list and see if it clears up, also add a little garlic (soak pellets in garlic juice or extract)

You will find the food list Here

I get anywhere from orange to brown to grey poo depending on what my o eats. He likes 'cichlid sticks' the most which are bright orange, and his poo comes out the exact same color if i give him enough
