One is guarding the eggs whilst the other keeps going over them if this helps with identification.
There are subtle differences in Angels that really take a trained eye to see. If you saw them spawning, the size of the breeding tubes should have been different. The females is shorter and thicker while the male's is more pointed and thinner.
In the album section in my profile (labeled Angelfish) is a picture with a trio of Angelfish. The arrows in the pic point to what I have always used as a sexual differentiator. (It's had a 90+ % effectiveness over the years
)The male is on the left while the other 2 are females.
Hope this helps...
