angelfish genders

i have two angelfish that i got of my brother because he couldnít keep up with cleaning anymore and they outgrew his tank, i think they are siblings they look very similar and came from the same batch of fish but idk for sure, i was just wondering theyíre gender cause i always thought they were both male but they constantly stay with each other and follow each other everywhere yet never nip each other yet iíve never seen any eggs not even unfertilised ones so i wanted to see what everybody else thought, they are in a 200l tall tank with 8 zebra danios and 6 corydoras and 1 pleco, the first photo is the bigger of the two of them and he got much bigger quite fast but the smaller seems to have slowed down growing

Angel fish are so hard to sex. Some males can develop a small nuchal hump. My guess is since they aren't fighting for hierarchy, they're both female or a mating pair. I bet they're both female. You'll know soon enough tho. I have 2 females in a tank and they take turns laying unfertilized eggs. Then guard them together like a mating pair. It's weird.

Both look like males bottom one obviously so. If you have had them for 9 months and no eggs is another reason to suspect neither is female.
