Default help in determining sex of discus

I have been researching on the net and reading forums, and found out that there are many different ways to determine the sex like thicker lips, geometric,dorsal fins but i am still confused. can anybody help me determine the sex of the two discus below?



I observed and i think is a male.




I observed and think is a female.

I observed with the traits and i think the top one is a male and the bottom one is a female. correct me if i am wrong. feel free to correct me also.

If anyone can tell you 100percent confidence Wat is the sex base on picture above, they must be the god.

If play guessing games, think any 3yr old kid also can do it.

Usually more visible only during breeding.
