The females will be a bit wider in the mid section and larger than the males.

Okay, I think I have 2 males and 3 females. The two males are thin and small and the three females are all very fat and about two inches to the male's 1-1/2. I've been feeding bloodworms and keeping the tank very clean and I saw some spawning behavior today!!!! I'll post a video of all five feeding to make sure I sexed them correctly

If you are lucky enough to have long finned cories, males have much longer dorsal fins than females, in addition to the difference in girth.
