By the spines on the tail section of both fish I would have to say 2 males.

Judging by the web page species I would say top is male with a wider base end before tail and bottom is female much like to a point before tail.

Looks like a pair to me too. Both have slightly different head shape

I’ve had a spawn of 97’s years ago. Those look quite small still, hard to tell, I’d almost tend to think both female, but time will tell.
