They both sound male to me. Any pictures? Is there any noticeable size difference between the two?

They are both males. Sexually mature males will have nuptial pads on their "fingers". These are blackened, rough patches which assists the male in holding on to the female during amplexus (mating embrace). Females will not have these pads, but the cloaca (vent) will be noticeably swollen. Both males and female ACFs will call.
