Both A and B are males .
A has his breeding tube so you can see what small and pointed is considered in pics 2&4 ..
There are many ways to sex rams but in most cases with rams over 5 months old the analfin should make it clear.
Females will have a short analfin stopping before the tail begins.
Males analfin will extend into the tail .
All bets are off on longfins and all the other tells can be used to help..
Did you get both rams at same place ? They do look to be from different batches by coloring IMO..
