male/female Dojo?

Can anyone sex these 2 loaches of mine?
Ive read the females have shorter and rounder pectoral fins and that's all I know.

So Im guessing this one is a male:

This one, I'm guessing is female because of the much shorter pectoral fin, However they are not really round.

yes, thank you very much! I believe I may have 2 males, because although the one has much shorter pectoral fins they are not rounded...

Still not sure if they are both males. I did get a good glance at the one with shorter pectoral fins, an they are rounded. Had no time for a photo though. I'm convinced they can tell when the camera focuses on them, because they always move at that moment.
