Albino Cory Cat Question

I have two Albino Cory Cats who have been acting rather strange lately. First, How can I tell which is male and which is female? (if they are one of each, that is)
And second, how do cory cats breed? Are they live bearers or egg layers or do the storkfish drop them by on misty mornings? How can you tell if a female cory cat is pregnant? Do they get the dark round bellies like guppies?
TIA

Generally, the female cory will be larger bodied. Cories are egg layers and will scatter them. In my experience, they aren't to particular where they lay. I don't know how to tell when a female going to lay, It's never been evident to me til I see them spawn.
Here is a link I found on breeding cories. HTH
