With the species you have, it's not going to be easy.

You can vent them once they are old enough, but they will need to be close to sexually mature before that is an accurate way to sex them.

You'll have to wait it out, if you don't know someone who can sex them for you. You can then remove them as they hold.

You may experience intensity in aggression by trying to keep several male zebras in that size tank, even without the females. I find it's easier to keep a non barred zebra with a barred zebra than trying to keep two non barred zebras or two barred zebras together.

Have you thought of Ps. blue dolphin? These guys are not aggressive at all. I have 10 adults in my 90g, 4.5-6", with 6m/4f, and there is no aggression whatsoever. They are a very nice fish and the males are awesome once they become full grown!
