Determining shrimp sexes

I think I know the sexes of my shrimp but want more experienced opinions. Also, I was told that an Amano shrimp will not breed with different types of freshwater shrimp. Is that correct? Thank you

1. Male? 

2. I am inclined to think male on this one because if size(small) and shape(straight) but wondering if that's ovaries in the saddle?

That looks like a male to me as well. It depends on how big/old they are though as younger small shrimp do all look the same until maturity!

You don't need to worrry about amano shrimp cross breeding with these shrimp, in fact you don't need to worry about amano breeding at all as they need saltwater for the larvae stage so you won't get any shrimplets from them.
