usually when you buy guppies from stores they will have them already seperated into different tanks, but if the dont the males have a "special" anal fin which allows them to deposite they're sperm into the female its called a gonopodium (spelling?) its is pointed where as a female will just have a "regular" fan shaped anal fin.


male


female
