Re: fish pairs #2
It's unfortunate, but it's done that way for a reason: suppliers would end up with far too many unsold males if they sold females alone.

Unless you can find someone selling females alone, the only way is to buy unsexed juveniles in a larger group than you need and rehome excess males once they mature.
