Yet another German Blue Ram sexing question...

Ok so ive read several other GBR sexing threads...i think I have a new wrinkle....the two GBR that I bought are a "Long Finned" variety. Meaning their fins are longer than the traditional GBR. Notice in the pic below the oversized dorsal fin, the front fish has this also but is obsured by the plant. and the anal fins reach past tail fin on both fish

So the dorsal fin is much bigger on this variety of GBR but what about the anal fins? Does that mean the anal fins are longer on both Male and Female
If the info on "aquahobby" is right, then my two fish are both males.

Can anyone else confirm?

Girls have the pink bellies and I don't see any pink bellies. I'd say you have two males too. I also like the obvious sexing trait of the females. Makes it much easier to tell the difference.
We, as a people, know so much more about outer space than we do about our own oceans. This lack of knowledge can very well spell the dangers that lay in wait for us.

The oceans surely would swallow us before a rock comes down to smite the planet of it's life.

They look like males to me...no female characteristics are visible.
