Need a good eye for sexing danios

have a long-finned golden danio who I'm pretty sure is a male but im not 100% I know how to tell this one just keeps stumping me. I took a few pictures and I hope they're good enough but my danios are full of every and never seem to slow down long enough to get a good shot. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance.

The pics could be a little clearer but may not be necessary. A female danio will be a little larger than the males and when gravid, will be well rounded in the abdomen while a male danio will be slender the whole way. The best way to judge for eggs is before the first feeding of the day. A female will be round before being fed.

Hope this helps
