With cacutoides, I have had entirely female spawns so I don't know if you 
will get any more males.

re: sleepers though, I've got Checkerboard Cichlid and Golden-eyed Dwarf fry 
at the moment and both seem to be almost all females until you remove the 
dominant male. After a big water change, new males seem to reveal themselves 
within a week or two.  Splitting the brood into different tanks of mixed 
species also seems to work well for me - I get a dominant male in each tank.
