Can anyone help me guess a sex on these two? They are both a bit larger than baseball sized I would guess (haven't held a baseball in quite a while)
I'm trying to sell them, and will sell them as unsexed, but I've had a couple people ask me about my thoughts on their sex. I'm assuming both female, but would like to get more opinions on it.

I wouldn't put money on this bet but Gold Angel in pic #2 looks like a male and Gold in pic #3 looks like female. A lot depends on whether these pics were taken before they ate or after. If after, then I go with my standard answer, "YES they are definitely either male or female "

The pics were taken after they ate, but a few hours after, at the least. I may not have even fed them yesterday, I think i forgot because I had one of my zebras trying to snack on bubbles today thinking they were pellets, but anyways these pics were taken last night a few hours after their normal dinner time.
I was kind of thinking they were pairing off because they are always together but I guess only time will tell. I assume they won't breed in a bustling community tank, right?

No, not true. If the fish want to spawn, they defend a section to spawn and beat up any fish that comes into it. Angels are schooling fish so the fact that were together is not really a sign. Swimming together with the male chasing away other potential suitors IS a sign however.

And since the pics were after they ate, I'm going with my standard answer above lol

It looks like their fins are getting nipped by other fish. What else is in the tank with them? Angel Fish make good targets for fin nipping fish because of the Angels fins being so long.

Here are some of my babies
koi veil, about quarter sized now. Have had them since even before they were pea sized, by far my favorites out of all the angels I've owned over the past couple years
