I'd say that the one on the bottom left is male and the other is female...but it's hard to tell with the fins from that angle

They are both females. Males have a broader, less distinct band on the tail, and usually the same on the dorsal fin. Also, the light vertical bars on either side of the lateral spot are a sign of a female, or a severely stressed male. Those fish do not look stressed at all. Finally, even a relatively small male GT will have a long dorsal with a pointed end. Neither of those fish have that.

Oh man that’s not what I wanted to hear I was looking for one male at least. Will they still get colorful? I read that the females are very bland but the darker one looks like she will be colorful.

Females can be moderately colorful, just not the blow-your-socks-off color of a mature male.

Just an update on these two green terrors, the one with the white tips on the fins is a male and the one with the orange is a female They have spawned several times producing fry, not very good at it yet though.

Lol I was so surprised when they spawned! Like I said they are not good at it at all. The Severum I asked you about has spawn twice the second batch went well and I have a ton of 1” babies swimming around.
