A few defo males, 2, 3 & 5 possible females.
Individual closer pics would give us more ideas. :wink:

Hey steve,
Is defo meaning Deform fish or definite ?
I'm very sure those 3 are females , also what do u think of number no 4 & number 7 they could be females as their never go in any caves. Just hanging around at the top , also no 1 is very aggressive male as he chases everyone away especially if their near his cave . Shall i take him out ?

Don't worry, all your fish are fine.
4 & 7 seem to have more angled head like males, but this is not always the case, thats why closer individual pics would help more.
No 1 is your alpha male & just doing his job of letting the others know who's boss, I would leave him in. :wink:
