Zeno,

I find it really hard to tell about these three, none of them occupy caves and they dont have alot of hair/wiskers.

Thank you for your opinion. :)

Kind regards,

Henk

Sap, the first fish looks slightly deformed to me, did you notice the odd fin shape?
Not sure about the first fish, the second and the third one look like males.

Correct! She is a bit deformed, the left fin is smaller then normal.
