I go by the pectoral spine odontodes. I see at least one (possibly 2) male and one female L260. However, your photos are taken from too far away, and in the yellow-green lighting, for me to get a clear view

Possibly, but I usually tell by comparing fish in water and side by side.

Cheers, Eric

Agree with Eric, from the in water shots I see one which I would be confident is a female.

So at least you should have a mix for a breeding group.

Good luck with them.
