The one to the right in post #3 looks like a female - The other one may be a male, but I’m not 100% sure. @Wills may be able to help more.

Yep looks like a male and a female - the male is the more colourful with the pointed dorsal and anal fins.

That's what I was hoping for ,, the only thing that was putting me off that one being a male is that its blue under the chin,, everytime I thought I had it sussed ,, I'd read something that told me otherwise ,, thanks very much

Looks like a male and a female.... But you will need to wait till they mature a bit to tell for sure. Males have more spangles throughout their body and females have some in the area around the gills while males do not.

Males are also much bigger. This will be evident as they grow.
