Default L134 Sexing

Hi everyone, need to tap on your sexing opinions as i'm very confused over sexing L134s.
(Sorry Mod, i know they are Plecolitas and not hypans but i really cannot find the last 'Pleco Showcase thread'. Do help shift this thread if its inappropriate. )


Here are 3 examples of the 8 L134s i have. Do the thorns along the lower part of the body make them a male? Thanks in advance for your opinions

1)



2)



3)

I guess they are minimally 4". Kept very long already...
So just trying to figure out why they are not producing yet.
