I'm thinking two females
I really hope so! I heard that females are tough to find, not sure if that’s true or not but i’ll take it!

Based on the finnage I'm pretty sure they're females, if one's a male though it should be the blue one

Okay thank you, you’re the best! No wonder they’re so friendly.

powder blue and maybe a sunset? I thought the males had a more pointed dorsal fin. Look like males . but being that they appear to be dwarfs i'm not sure if i'm on the right track. still learning.

blue looks male. I think the orange one is also male but harder to tell.
basically if the top fin makes a pointed triangle, its male and if its rounded then female.

I see two sets of rounded fins indicating females, but I'm not 100% on the powder blue

If I wanted a female it would have to look like this

The DG is like guppy ..Many color variations but females are plain ,never or very rarely having any color in comparison to what you all are used to seeing .

Hello everyone! It’s been a while but I wanted to update you guys and ask a question... The gouramI have been incredible, they’re friendly towards each other and the other fish and I have no problems with them. Even if they are both male I guess they just get along and think of each other as friends ! I just got another gouramI today and I think it might fit the description of being a female... It’s got rounded fins and faded colors. It’s supposed to be a blue dwarf but it seems so faded next to the blue dwarf this post is about... Can anyone tell what it is?

I took another picture, a bit clearer this time, it’s still really really shy
