Sexing Otocinclus

I got two of these guys


Does anyone know how to sex these guys?....I got two and I think one might be male one female. The only reason Im saying this is because one of them has 2 white dots on the top of its head and the second one dosent.

No clue. As far as I know, there is no way to tell with them. I'm pretty sure there hasn't been many sucessful breeding attempts in the home aquarium.
