The second pic looks like a male and the thrid kinda looks like a female, if you get a side view of the third shrimp it would be better.

I think I do have a male and a female because one is considerably bigger than the other. I hope and pray one berries lol.

It does look like you a male and a female. Basically males dish/arch up in the tail and females dish/arch down. They're pretty easy to sex once you know what you're looking for. That said, I have one CRS that ceratinly looks female and is the largest of all my shrimp, but has never berried. *shrug*

Could be 2 males. I have a few that are a bit bigger but never been berried, never saddled and have the slightly more streamlined look, even though they are bigger than the rest. I agree though, the crystals are harder to tell.
