My guppies have just given birth and are now sitting in a breeder box. I'm only intrested in keeping a few males. Could anyone tell me how to tell the difference between them at one week old. thanks

Take a look at this, it might help:



but im not sure if you'll be able to tell at 1 week old. :-\ Someone else might be able to tell you.

I am pretty sure you won't know until about 6 weeks or so. What do you plan on doing with the others that you don't want?

It might be a while with the livebearers, even up to a few months until they show their gender. our platy fry are in a tank of their own until they're big enough to take to the LPS and they still all look like females.

Yea, I think most shops will take them when they're an inch or more.
