Boesemani Sexing - Can't tell if ugly male or pretty female...

So, I got 2 new boesemani rainbowfish to join the one I currently have. I will be getting 3 more when I have the funds (they are so darn expensive relative to other tropicals!).


I'm having trouble sexing them now... I could have sworn they were both pretty obviously female in the store (neither of them had orange... maybe he didn't catch the one I thought he did)... Here's some photos (they swim fast!):

THIS IS HIM/HER (questionable one):



This is the OTHER female (that I am fairly certain is actually a female) with my male rainbow (who was the original one -- beautiful!)



This is all 3; Questionable one on the left:



Here's the one I am fairly certain is female:



And then the questionable one to the left of my beautiful male:



What do you all think the "questionable one" is? Ugly male or pretty female? :P I was really hoping to get 3 pretty males total, hopefully this doesn't take the place of one of them. :( Please be female!

Also the guppy seems to like the rainbows :P

I'll try to get clearer pics but its hard...

As you know, I'm far from expert myself, but I tend to agree with you that's it's a female. I could be totally wrong though. Let's see what the experts say. Your guppy look SO MUCH like mine! Here's a pic of him.
