I am not an expert by any means, but it looks like you have two males in there I could be wrong though.

Curve ball... Not sure if this is possible but would a male turn yellow to try and submit to the other male ?? The less dominant one seems to be more yellow now. Crossing fingers it's a female.... But doubting

Is the yellow one more round? Females also have much shorter fins than males.

I bought 4 blue steel apistos on the weekend, I chose one dominant male and 3 "hopeful" females. Definitely a bit of a guessing game.
