    Also I believe the males have ZERO color within the black eye on their sides, females will have it in and around.

    This helped a lot.. from this video and watching them in my tank for a bit I feel as though the order is M, M, F, F, F

    Biggest things that caught my eye were the head shape (pointed vs a rounder fore-head), length of pectoral fins (while the 5th is long, it is not as long as 2 Males), and the 2nd ray (in the 5th is kinda long, but the video shows a female with one that is similar, but then points out how the males are obviously much longer)

    Currently this female is the only one without a pink belly in the tank and therefore is being isolated a little bit, but she has her own place to call a territory. The females have been digging like crazy, didn't think they could move that much substrate in one night
