Sexing oscars isn't easy unless you definitely have a couple of similar aged mature oscars for comparison. Since you have a large number of oscars (and also hoping you have a equally large tank for them), you can try this. The male's dorsal fin is longer and often overlaps the tail fin. Also, the male's anal fin is much more pointed. A females dorsal fin is usually rounder. The male may also have 2-3 dark spots at the base of the dorsal fin.

HTH.

Yeah, those are a little harder to sex, if at all. I don't have any info on the albino's. Perhaps a google search can produce some results?

there is no sure fire way of sexing an oscar.
even venting is not 100% accurate.
best way is to see if they spawn and hatch eggs.
