that could also be the light angle... use flash cause my camera "moves from high to low pressure" (sucks), this helps prevent motion blure...

I'm guessing the stripe down the body of the "males" is the tell? Aside from the color, that seems to be the major difference... Nice looking fish, I'm sure they'll be happy in their new home!

well i am not able to see them all (i think they are hidding under a piece a driftwood...i hope they are just hidding . they are still small (slightly smaller then my cardinal tetra) and there is the possibilty that my angels could catch them...

largest male and one of the females (clearly female) are a little braver, even went nose to nose with male GBR, lol
