Oscar breeding?

Can some one tell me more about this?
I have two oscars. how can you tell if they are a male or a female? Mine seem to "flirt" the way I have seen other fish, but how can I know for sure? What types of things and conditions would they need to breed?
My fish are already about 4 inches long and do a lot of rubbing together.

my bird loves to eat wild bird seed and wild bird food.

At four inches, it will be another five or six months before They are sexually mature or roughly a year old.
Is no clear way to determine the male from female until ,or unless ,,you see the female depositing eggs.. Large tank,clean water, variety of foods,and lots of filtration will offer the fish the best chance.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
