One way to tell and I cant see for sure on the pictures, males have a purple coloration to them, females also tend to stay around 12".

Males anal and dorsal fins are also noticeably longer and more pointed than a female.

If they are male and female, anything going near them when they are in breeding mode, is in danger, they are extremely aggressive when breeding and will even go after fish way bigger than them.

Nice looking fish

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

Yes you have a mating pair. Be sure to keep them isolated from other fish because they become hyper aggressive once breeding.
