    Correct me if I am wrong, but they look like males to me because of the elongated, pointed dorsal fin. But it is really hard to tell from the pictures. It is not real clear.:;hi2

    im still not sure about the second one.
    and the 2nd elongated fin is not a 100 percent way of telling cause some females have them two.
