    Yes, 2 females. Red belly color isn't 100% with female rams but I believe that I am seeing a trace in both specimens.
    Also, the second one does show some blue specks in the mid-lateral spot which in my experience is a pretty good indicator of a female.

    I think that we have 2 females, but you have to wait sometime, and get more photos in the future.
