Sexing Opaline Gourami's

Having trouble sexing the two Gourami's I just got. They have been friendly and rubbing on each other. Can any professionals help me out? I got tons of guppies (breeding them) and don't need any more at this point. Lol!! Attached are some photos.

Males usually have a pointed dorsal and females a rounded one.

Hard to tell from yer pics, so can't be 100%.

The left picture in the second row looks like a female.

The right picture in the second row may be a male. The leopard print background kinda breaks up the outline of the fin, though.
