1) Baby Blue Fish, difference between male and female

2) Yellow, black, white, difference between male and female

3) Black and Blue stripes, difference between male and female

4)Baby blue with black outline, difference between male and female

5) Yellow with black outline, difference between male and female

Thank you very kindly for your time
