Hoping someone out there can help me tell the sex of my three rasboras. These are the best out of 10 photos i could get out of these speed demons cause they kept running from the camera and hiding behind their tank mates

I can't tell from the photos. But adult males will appear slimmer and more brightly coloured than females which (obviously) will be chunkier when viewed from above and less colourful. As with most rasbora, there are no external gender differences aside from these.
