Zac,
I personally would not hazard a guess - perhaps someone might like to, but not me.
Quite often the gender of Adults can be determined by their nature and how they react to other Angels, but there really isn't enough there to even begin to try.
Maybe someone else here can identify them for you.

Impossible to tell from that video.Wait until you have a pair angels can be very hard to determine.
Males and females of angelfish slightly differ in shape. The difference may be noticed as early as when the fish are about three months old. Males' bodies are a little oval or oblong if you watch them from the side. Females are more rounded.Also males have massive or bulky foreheads which look like humps as they get older.

Here an other video for better look may be it will help more to identify them if first two are female i think then all female so i need one male or three female can live with one male or need to remove them just keep two of them?

Hi they look big enough to show signs of breeding,
I myself can't tell but the fish might be able to!
Condition them with lots of clean water and food,frozen bloodworm
Works well,and if there's a male there it wont be long before he starts
Showing off,
Cutting a female off while flaring his gills at the same time is one sign,

Anyone with a aquarium can keep fish,
But it takes real skill to be a fish keeper,

thanks for the second Vid, you have 3 females

just so you know how to sex them there are 5 ways to sex angels

1) the 1st black vertical stripe that passes through the eye appears tp be straighter in the male than in the female, in the female the stripe has a definate curve upwards towards the start of the dorsal fin
2)the spines at the base of the start of the dorsal fin are more jagged and irregular in the male than the female
3) the space between the extended ventral fins(feelers) and the start of the anal fin is shorter in males and less curved in females
4)the tube that appears just prior to breeding is differently shaped, in the male it appears to be more pointed and carried at a more forward angle, but in the female it appears to be blunt and appears to be carried at a slight angle to the rear
5)the lower jaw of the male slightly over laps the upper jaw, which is the reverse for the female as her upper jaw slightly overlaps her bottom jaw

hope this helps
Seamus
