The first one looks like it has a pink belly so I would say female for that. The second is a male I believe. I could be wrong as i am better with Gold and Blue Rams, but I think you have a pair!

Just because you have a male and a female doesn't mean they will pair up but you have a pretty good shot. They do best breeding wise in 80 degrees and the female will lay the eggs and the male will sit on them. The male will become aggressive if any fish gets near though. Also the first couple try's might fail as well. But just wait and see if they pair up

Yes ik it's pretty difficult to breed but I just wanted to know if u guys think I had a male and female first now that I think I do I wanted to know the procedures like if I had to move them to a different tank and my water is fairly warm

I have two rams and I haven't moved them to a different tank. I wouldn't worry too much. They look pretty young so it won't happen yet. I hope they do have babies though! I love rams and I think you will too

Didn't mean to hit the paper airplane, lol. The African clawed frogs love to trap the fry in java moss and eat them. I have noticed my female has more then one spot, my male only has one and also, my female is pink from throat to tail.
