Hi,

on the photo there are Hypancistrus.
I think, probably one male and one female. The others are to young for determine the gender.

Hi,

... these Hypancistrus are hard to distinguish. There is only a small chance to classify them reasonably: a comparison of body proportions. This is not possible with your photo.

It's usually easier to ask the breeder.
