guppy male or female?
I am just starting this hobby, I was wondering how you tell if my guppies are male or female. I was hoping for both so i can have babies :lol: Really looking forward to it

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.
