I see a couple males in the pics, but also see several females. You will see the best color immediately after lights on in the morning. Also when the males spar with each other, they color up pretty nicely. Watch your bows for their breeding stripe. You will see a flashing of color change that runs from the nose area to the first dorsal fin. Males do this to encourage the females to breed. It's quite a sight the first time you notice it.
