Not sure if I have two males or a female and a male. Any help would be appreciated.

The first 3 images are of what I suspect to be the male and the rest of the images are of the female in my opinion.

Pretty sure you have 1 male (first 3 pics) and 1 female (rest of the photos).

Some good ways to sex them:
The males do not get a blue sheen over their central black spot, but the girls do.
The anal fin on the females will be more round than the males (males more pointed).
The upper and lower tips on the male's tailfin will get streamer extensions and the females don't.
The first 2-3 notches on the front of the dorsal fin will extend higher than the rest of the dorsal on the males. The females will be roughly the same height as the rest of the dorsal.
A pointed rear tip on the dorsal is more of a male characteristic as well, but can be hard to distinguish.

Hope this helps!
