The only way I know to sex corys is by their girth when viewed from directly above. Females are rounder/plumper than males. I can't tell this from your photos.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

I can't tell from your pics but I'm not sure if they're full grown yet - its maybe 2f and 1m. My own pandas are full grown and my single female is noticeably much bigger than my 5 males as well as plumper around the belly. Give it time and it'll probably become more obvious what sex yours are
