Apistogramma agissizii male or female?

Well, I just got a pair of Apistogramma agissiziis and I don't know whether they are male or female. I got the largest bully fish and another hiding under driftwood with duller colors and larger belly. I have searched the internet for some pics of males and females and I still can't tell mine apart, either they're both males or I'm really bad at it. Thanks for helping

That would be a very nice male, the female would be yellowish with way less elaborate finnage
