Male guppies have a colourful body, as well as a fancy, larger tail. They also have a gonopodium instead of the normal fan-shaped anal fin.
Females are usually plain bodied with a rounded, spade-like tail and the fan-shaped anal fin.
If at first you don't succeed....
...get someone else to do it! Big Grin

Enjoy your fish, shrimps and snails!

Yes they do, but I saw teeny babies in the same tank as males, can they tell when they are that small ?

If they have a gonopodium - definitely male.

If the youngsters still have the triangular shaped fin - not sure yet.

Just go for the ones you know are definitely male and leave any ''don't knows'' until they're old enough  Cool

It can take about 3-4months for dimorphism to show (at least in platys) it might be a bit shorter in guppies, but its the change in anal fins you need to watch (although tails are also a giveaway with guppies).
