Male and Female?

I am sure this has been asked, but Im confused on whether I have a female and male Angelfish here. They are usually together swimming around but sometimes when foraging for food, one likes to scan the surface, while the other picks the ground.

If their vents are like other cichlids then I believe you have a male and female

They seem to be. I mean they follow each other around 98% of the time not sure if the conditions are right for breeding. I guess if it happens it happens

How warm is your water? If it's warm enough they will look for an elevated surface

I keep it around 80. Its actually hard to tell with my thermometer. I have one that sticks to the side, and the yellow number is 80. But 78 is dark blue.
