My new Rainbows! Sex?

Can you guys sex my new Rainbows? I got two turquoise (to go with the two I already had), a Boesemani and an Australian. All at Petsmart. No one else around me carries them. So I have a total of six now. 4 Turquoise, and the Boe and the Australian.

One of the new Turquoise is missing the front dorsal fin! Didn't notice this until I got home. Will this be a problem, or will it grow back? I don't care if the fish doesn't have one, I just want to be sure there won't be any problems because of it.

Now, I don't know the sex of any of them, but I'm better with sexing Turquoise than anything. The Boe is half yellow on the rear end, so I'm almost certain it's a male. But the Australian I'm not sure at all.

Can you sex them for me? They are a little over 2" long. First pic is Turquoise on top, Aussie on bottom. Boe is middle pic, of course, and two turquoise with the Aussie in last pic. Thank you!Aust. bottom Turquoise top.jpg
