Help Identifying German Rams! Male or Female?

Hey all, I got a couple of German Rams not too long ago but just realized that I have no idea if they're a pair or if they are the same sex. I really don't want them breeding, so I'm hoping they're both the same. One is golden and one is blue, I will post a couple of pictures and hopefully you guys can help me out.
Thanks

I hope the pictures work...in case they don't, I will post the links right underneath each picture.

Here is the Blue -

And the Golden -

I'm thinking two males. It will be easier to tell when they color up.

Alright sounds good, thank you for the replies. Any idea how long it should be until they color up?

Probably a couple of weeks. two at the most, but should color up rather quickly. Brine shrimp will help them color up faster.

Hey, I ended up going back to where I got them today and found out that they are indeed both males. Looks like you were right! Thanks for the replies, I appreciate the help.

One is a gold and the other is a ballon ram. It's a german blue with a body mutation.

Not as far as M. ramirezi, but I have heard bolivians referred to as yellow rams.
