Default GBR Sexing

Hey guys!

Just wondering if I can get some help sexing these rams?

I've scoured the net to find all the sexing information I could, and I'm still thrown for a loop.

GBR 1...longer ventral fins, shape of the head, solid black patch...but pink hue in the belly:



GBR 2...smoother head, black spot has blue dots in it, shorter fins, much pinker belly:

If you look where the anal fin is, there is a small vent sticking out... GBR 1 and 2 are both females!!! The females are more colorful and have a pink hue on it's belly!

Thanks for the replies guys, very much appreciated.

Now I can seek out a male or two and split them into pairs

No problem. Look for some without the pink belly. It's a dead give away it's female
