Can anyone chime in an ID the sex of this RCS?

I have a lot of females but I am not sure if I have males since none have berried yet.

Any help is appreciated

Couple of females from the tank for comparison

If those are in fact males (which they appear to be), then they are some extremely nice looking males!
Thanks for the input! It's really hard distinguishing the males because they are all so red. Most guides tell you to look for saddles and thinner tails/lighter color.

My problem is the color is similar across the board and that the saddle is hard to see.

So I have been trying to go by thickness if body/tail but it's not easy.

Any more input would be appreciated

Right before the light comes on in the tank (i.e. when their shells *should* be lightest), scoop a shrimp up then bring it up to the then turned on light.


I would guess that there is at least one male...

I'll give that a shot in the morning!

Just want to make sure I have males to get this colony going. I know I have at least 5 saddled females but no one has berried so I am concerned.
