Hi guys think iv a pair of angels here as these two have never fought with each other and always hang about. They have even been cleaning some plants of late but that might just be my wishful thinking. Heres pics of them hope they load up and maybe someone can sex them. Im near sure the blue one is a male

3 females you have there

just so you know how to sex them there are 5 ways to sex angels

1) the 1st black vertical stripe that passes through the eye appears tp be straighter in the male than in the female, in the female the stripe has a definate curve upwards towards the start of the dorsal fin
2)the spines at the base of the start of the dorsal fin are more jagged and irregular in the male than the female
3) the space between the extended ventral fins(feelers) and the start of the anal fin is shorter in males and less curved in females
4)the tube that appears just prior to breeding is differently shaped, in the male it appears to be more pointed and carried at a more forward angle, but in the female it appears to be blunt and appears to be carried at a slight angle to the rear
5)the lower jaw of the male slightly over laps the upper jaw, which is the reverse for the female as her upper jaw slightly overlaps her bottom jaw

hope this helps
