Hello, I’m unsure if these red tuxedo x guppies are male, they’re a few months old but exhibit signs of both sex:
As you can see they have stripes on their body and what looks like gonopodiums that they move around (left, right, tucked) as they swim. It’s also hard to see the gravid spot because of their colouring and their shape is more female. The more obvious boys seem to flare at (arch their bodies sideways, moving like a hummingbird, fanning their tail out - not sure what you call that) and harass them so much more than the other boys in the tank - they were put in a week or so ago from nursery tank and the others have been there longer.
Any help with this would be hugely appreciated - I really don’t have the space for more babies!

female guppies have a fan or triangle shaped anal (bottom) fin.

sexually mature male guppies have a long straight anal fin.

young guppies will have a fan/ triangle shaped anal fin.

all the fish in the pictures are males.

Thank you so much for your response, I’m glad to hear my initial sexing was right and I’ve finally got all the males in one tank. Thanks again!

They look like all males to me.

I do suggest you get some females, to reduce aggression among the males.
