from this pics is hard to tell if you even have m/f in the tank. better pics would help.

it takes time for jewels to sex. you will have to be patient. its best to have 6-7 jung ones, and whan you see pair forming, taking others out of tank since they can get quiet nasty whan breeding and defending teritory , so its not unusual that they will kill others. Also its harder to sex adult jewels, usualy stronger one kills weeker fish.

True the pics are a bit fuzzy but my guess would be pic#1 male & #2 female. Does the fish in the first shot do a little head down dance in front the second fish by any chance.
