Need Help!! Can't Tell if my Cory is a Male/Female

I just picked up an Emerald Green cory and he's loving his new home. He seems a bit lonely though so I wanted to pick up another one or two. The only problem is I can't tell what gender it is! I dont want to get all males by accident and have them end up bothering eachother. HELP!

With most Cory cats the females are larger and have a rounded, more full appearance. The males are smaller and might have longer fins. Just a tip for when selecting your new additions.

Top down views help recognize the difference easier also.

They won't bother each other if you get all males. They do better in shoals of at least 5
