    I am pretty sure the larger one, picture 1 is a female, and I think the other two are males. One of the presumed males does have a pinkish belly (picture 3) or asking for help.

    The first 2 are females and the last one is a male. Check not only for the pink belly, but females have the blue on top of the black stripes, and males don't.

    Thanks, I was almost positive the 2nd one was a male.

    I guess it’s what device your looking at the pictures with. So I would say the 2 with the planted background are female and the one with the blue gravel background is hard to tell.

    One last question. Will females display a pink belly like in the first picture if they are in a tank with all females, or would she color up only if one of the 3 was a male? Not sure if I have 3 females or 1 male and 2 females?

    Females are not always pink but for the most only females get pink .

    I’d also say first and last are female, middle is a young male.
