they are hard to see being that small ( pics) what you can do for hiding spots is black pvc pipe and put it on the back wall. it will blend in so its not seen and still give more hiding spots. as for sexing the rams i hope this will help. these are not my pics i snaged them from google to show examples

female: dorsal fin is rounded at the back and the anal fin is round


male: dorsal and anal fin have point to them
