in most cases 2 months is way too early especially in most cases where males dont grow as soon in size and sexual maturity.
So id be safe and say no.

You also are doing the right thing because the girls get big enough to eat the boys, also what are you feeding them? x

I don't know about guppies, and excuse me if I'm off, but my molly fry all got pregnant around 6- 8 wks... A few males developed early and impregnated the whole batch... Other males developed later.
They started giving birth around 10-13 wks

oooooh, well shuckle me silly, always learn something on AA ive been breeding guppys for 5 years and had around 60 generations of fry
Never experienced guppys impregnating at 2 months but mollies ive never tried or known. All i can recommend is taking out the tiny ones although admitedly the females get their gravid spots at 1 1/2 months. The males gonopodium isnt formed. until 3 months

mollies and guppies are both of the genus pocilia, so follow ocminpin's post for a good guide line.
my mollies also started "going after" each other at about 10weeks old.

I just figured they would get pregnant as soon as they got to the LFS anyway so why worry about separating sexes. (assuming the LFS has males of their own... OR new owners will have a male)
