Yea, the smaller one is super bright yellow and shiny and swims up to me when I walk over and still eats quite a bit. The big dark one is eating way more now, and I have no idea if it's due to the increase in size (wich occurred over the span of 1-2 days and it almost doubled in size it seems) or if it is egg laden.

I can't figure out the genders, I don't know if the fins are developed or not...What if it's 2 females?

If it's two females there's a bit more of a chance they'll tolerate each other. But you may still get a female bully. Someone on the forum had 2 female gouramis and one was a big bully. I think they ended up returning one to the LFS. How are they getting along now? Is one still being harassed?

There was one point where the big one tried chasing and bothering/attacking the little yellow one for like 20 minutes and then mellowed out a bit. But it still does it quite a bit.
