Hi,

Basically, it's better if you judge it yourself, because there are always optical illusions in photos. Instructions are there: To distinguish the sexes of small hypostominae loricariids

The catfishes all seem to have a slightly rounded waist. They might be a little overfed.

My opinion based on the photos:
1 male
2 probably female (head like female, but the pectoral fin rays seem relatively strong - possibly too young to determine)
3 could be male (head like female, but waist seems relatively narrow compared to the others - possibly too young to determine
4 female
5 male
6 male
7 probably female
8 male
9 male
10 probably female

Greetings
Elko
