Endler's gender question

I have a colony of Endler's going and I've gotten a few fry so far. I'm getting about 3 fry every few days. I am letting them grow out and its looking like I am not getting any males. Are the genders temperature specific with Endler's? I have three males and around 10 females at the time.

it can some times take a couple months for them to start showing color. anal fins start to change around 3 weeks so that might be best bet to sex them early

With my tiger endlers easily seen sexual dimorphism shows up pretty late (not sure on the exact time frame). I find that in the summer when my tank is in the low 80s I get a lot of females and few males.

i thought i had 3 females until one of them showed a hint of reflective green and the anal fin changed.
i've got another 15 fry since then and cant wait to see what flavour they turn out.
