They look to be both males.. I'd separate them if they're together if I were you.

Look like males

I would say you've got a pair of males, but not definitely. From my understanding [and from my own collection], several forms of leachianus leachianus and leachianus henkeli have females that have dark colored pores in front of the vent, just like males. However, instead of these pores being "pits," they are just dark colored. To be a 100% sure, get a 10x or jeweler's loop and take a closer look at those pores. I wish I could show you exactly what males and females look like, but I've just got female at this point. In any case, I'm sure they are some beautiful specimens.

100% both males. that is more then a decent shot of them, you dont need much of a closer look. Females dont have dark pits to the pores.

female pores
young male henkeli pores [in shed]

edit: ive been using the same poorly shot male pore shot for the longest time, so i just took some new pics of my boy. now that hes a little more "mature"

and.. i dont have a photo editing program right now [my computer died] so straight off the camera will have to do.
