Male or female?

Hey I have 2 severums and don't know if one if them is make or female.. I definitely know my
Gold Sev is a male with worming markings on his cheeks and face but don't know
About my green one? My green one has markings on the cheek, but nothing on top of the face. Pictures are attached.. I'm just asking as they are acting very peculiar with each other at the moment like Clearing a flat surface by removing sand by picking it up in their
Mouths and spitting it elsewhere. Thanks a lot
Any help would be great

Welcom to the forum,

Your green is a female, I'd expect to see eggs within a few weeks.

Thank you so much! I was just wondering, I am thinking of removing the fry and putting them in a separate tank to grow, what tank size do you think I would need to grow them up to a decent size where I can sell them?

It all really depends if there is a market for them, but I start with 20g longs with sponge filters then after they hit the 1" mark I start selling. Around here the only sevs that sell well are super reds and rotkeils.
