GBR male or female?

I found some of the most amazing GBRs I've ever seen today at a tiny fish shop in Seattle. But I think I accidentally got two males instead of two females. The one in the picture is the one I'm not sure about. He seems to be darker in color but I just can't tell for sure. Thanks for the help

I'd say male, but a closer up pic would help

The one in the front is the one in question. It looks darker in this picture. it looks much more pale than the one I know for sure is a male

females tend to be slightly smaller and paler, however if its a Juve, chances are its colours wont be on show as much and it could be male, mine were very distinctly smaller and paler, i'd say thats 2 males..

on second look. i'd say definitely male, the front of the top fin is slightly taller than the rest, characteristic of a male, also a female would have a pinkish belly, when carrying eggs, much more vivid, but even without eggs, would be atleast slightly pink...

Male all the way, prepare for war! Joking, might be a bit of chasing and ramming though.
