Only problem that I forsee, is that they both look like males.

In that case, they may have been hormoned. If they gradually lose their bright colors over the next ~3 months, they were hormoned prior to sale.

Guys I think we are missing the whole point of this post. The question is has anyone had problems with older and larger females trying to get a younger male to mate with them?

Some larger females will accept a smaller male, some won't. So, yes, there can be problems for smaller males trying to mate with larger females.
