Guppy gender

At what age should i be able to distinguish the gender of my guppy fry(and yes i know how to tell the difference)? I have 5 approx 10day old fry that are growing fast. Also when do they start getting their coloration?

Guppy gender

They are usually colored sexable and ready to put in the tank in eight weeks.

Colors don't come in on guppy fry until around a month, they usually are all clear when born. However if you know how to sex by the fins then you should already be able to. A trick i learned is hold a light behind the fish and look at the fins. The female will have the fan shaped fin and the males have the gonopodium.
