Male or Female Angels

I've had these two angels for a year or so (bought them as tiny quarter sized babies). I'm not trying to breed them, but one gets picked on occasionally and I wonder if it's just "courting" or "flirting"

ē mostly white one ~ I'm pretty sure this is a male because of the dip and bump on the forehead.
ē marbled one ~ I can't tell if there is a bump on the forehead, at least it doesn't appear that there is. This one is 3/4 the size of the other one (they were the same size when I bought them). This one gets picked on occasionally by the mostly white one.

I don't have much experience sexing angle fish. But what I read online you have to wait too they are fully mature before you can tell. And then it's the tail fun that tells the difference.

These are fully mature. The mostly white one is the size of my hand.

I would say they are both male, but the only true way to know is too see them mate. Or to see their tubes come out....more boxy is female, pointy is male.
