Are they Bloody Mary male?

Each picture is a different shrimp. Any of them is male?

They are so small compare to the female. They are just 1/2 of the female. For the big female, they are just 1/3 of the big female.

If they are males, do they have any issue to sex with the female that is double or triple his size?
I saw my female ones have saddle for like 3 weeks already. But I can't find any of them berried.

All of them were at the same size when I got them, but now some of the female are much bigger than thw one in the picture.

I'd guess males on the first 2 photos, #1 almost certainly. Photo 3 more than likely is, but hard to tell from that distance and angle. Females are usually much larger and more colorful. There's no issue with size disparity when it comes breeding time. When the female molts, the males will typically find and breed her.
