Females have blue "beards" blue covering the lower jaw and gill plates. little to know blue spangles on the top half of the body. Males have no blue on the gill plate and lower jaw but have blue spangles everywhere else.

Now you know how to ID them if you go in and find one that is obviously female then I would swap one out, otherwise I would give it some time.

JD's are usually cheap ($3.99 by me) if you are looking for a pair I would get 2 more wait for a pair to form and then trade in the others.
