I also have 2 bolivians that I'm trying to sex. I'm no expert, but the fish in the bottom 4 pics does appear to be male. It has the longer tail fins. As for the fish in the first 4 pics, sorry I can't tell.

The bottom one is a male, the top one I am unsure. I find that you can sex them by looking at the belly and if one has a bump between the front fins and the tail it's normally a female, you can sorta see with my rams in the pics ive added. The first is male the second is female. Unfortunately mine won't pair up so I have to add another male or female

I do think you have two rams of the opposite gender.

Ive got a couple more but trying to get them both sideby side is nigh on impossible. Lol.

You can def. See a difference in the organ region? Both about the same size.

Male first 2pics then Female second 2pics

I may have to get another female to see if he pairs or leave it a few more days?

Names = Florence & The Machine.
