I'm guessing that both my female guppies are now knocked-up. Is it a good idea to remove the males at this point so they don't keep harassing the females? I have two tanks going so this wouldn't be a problem.

Unless you want more broods of fry, probably. Though keep in mind they will continue to birth even after you remove the males, probably a good 6 more broods, or even more.

Thanks D, just transferred them. They have a few Neon friends to hang out with for a while.

I'm not sure if you are a breeder but if you just have a basic fish tank I would leave them in healthy females can produce up to 50 fry per birth you don't want the tank overpopulated. With proper hiding spots a good amount of fry will live and grow out.
