Anyways here is more I need sexed.

The normal Jd is 95% male in my option but I'm no expert so give me your thoughts.

Is the albino even a JD?

Thanks!

The pink fish in the first pic isn't a JD. It's a male pink convict.

I can't see the actual JD well enough to guess the sex.

I am of no help except to say I love the whitish/pinkish fish! I have a thing for albino fish apparently and he is just gorgeous! (I have 3 albino catfish who are just adorable lol)

Aren't male JD's meant to have more colouration on the face than females? >.>
I could be totally wrong here though ;P
From what I know the males face is spangled a noticeable amount more than females, especially over the forehead stripes.
Not much on that ones face, so I'd go female if the colouring thing is right!

Edit: Yay for google!

generally, males will have amazing speckles on their body and drab around their gill plates and bellies...where as fems will have amazing spackles on her gill plates and not so colorful on their bodies

That's been my experience as well.

I have two pairs that spawn or have spawned in the past and another working on a spawn at the moment so I feel comfortable saying that Shawnie's information on sexing has been verified, at least at my house.
