My avatar on this forum is a male wild type endlers livebearer. On other forums, where I go by Oldman, it is often a Brachyrhaphis roseni.

And in fancy guppies, males tend to be the ones with the big "fancy" tail.

Check out my tanks. :)

A male and female of any of the poeciliid fish, including guppies can be distinguished by the anal fin shape. These are not guppies but the anal fin differences are the same.
This is a male


His gonopodium is clearly visible below his body.

This is a female of the same species


Her triangular shaped anal fin is also obvious below her body right near where she eliminates her waste.
