With that much red on the "female", I'd say you've got 2 male Apistogramma hongsloi.
If this tank has a 60x30cm footprint (or similar) please return one of the fish without replacement.

Ok thank you for the answer although they are spawning so I am fairly certain one is a female

Allright, the domestic forms of that species have also reached pronounced male features, then. Wicked. Mine never showed any significant red.

(I kept them 2020/2021)

But you get male features in many domestic breeds. And often these domestic fish are the only ones from these species available. A. hongsloi is just one of them.
