Vieja Melanura Gender ID

AcuarioAmazonico

Firstly apologies for the horrible editing of the photo - I blurred out the background where you can see me and my messy kitchen! :)

Question: what is the sex of the bottom vieja? The top is male as he is always fertilising my blood parrots eggs (obviously to no avail!) but I’m unsure of the bottom one. They don’t display aggression to eachother, both are coloured up and both seem to have ‘bumpy’ heads. Yet never attempted any mating so I kind of assumed they were both males…

Cheers,

AA
