Cockatoo apistogramma male or females

Just was wondering if I had to males or one male and a female?
The smaller of the two is a lot less bright?

I think 2 males also.
If you are to return one keep #1 as its line [and spine possibly ] are straight.

Females are rounder, kind of like a nerf football, have black pelvic fins and shorter finnage in general. Yellow is usually a good indicator as well. Happy hunting
