Gourami bubble nest - are fish male and female or both male?

Hi!

I'm have a gourami making a bubble nest but I thought I had two male fish. Can someone please help with telling the sex of these fish. I am new to breeding anything other than live bearers so I'm not very good at determining the sex yet.

It certainly appears that both fish are males and it's the male that builds the nest so unless they are both building the same nest, it would be "normal" for there to be 2 nests in the tank as they build them in hopes of attracting a non present female when she becomes present.

Hope the helps.
