So similar? Or dissimilar? ... I'm guessing similar...

You tried to tell two herring apart?

In American English, we do not say "two herring" but rather "two herrings." (Of course, we wouldn't be using this idiom either :) 'Two peas in a pod,' might be the term we use).

"alike as two herrings" sound better..
