two spot goby mating

I just got a small two spot goby for my tank and i read online that they normally do better as a pair. How can i tell if i have a female or male? I'd like to get a second but don't know how to tell. Do i need to buy this fish as a mated pair to have success?

Mated pair living in close quarters and swimming together at the lfs is the only way to buy two.

Cute fish and I love the sand sifting/cleaning, but they don't live long in my experience. Best of luck to you on them.
