How have you determined the sexes? Oscars don't reach sexual maturity until they are around 18 months old which would make them roughly 10-12 inches. What size tank are they in?

They are monomorphic which means there is no way to visually sex them, there is no way you can know yours is a male. They only true way to ID is them laying or fertilizing eggs which is a long ways off.

Put pickles and ice cream in the tank, if one eats it she's a pregnant female..

Or you could put a model muscle car in it and the first one to get to its a male.
