Hi! My partner and I are really struggling to determine which guppies are female and which are male. I know about the gravid spot, male gonopogulum (sorry I don’t know how to spell it), and such but I feel like I’m loosing my mind. I have some guppies I would like to make sure are pregnant and not just bloated. Please let me know!! 054F6F97-66FA-45FA-9F01-C35673AB3C60.jpeg

Could you get closer pics? If they have been in a tank with a male at any point in the last year they likely are
 
Here are some more pics. I can take more if needed too

If they have white stringy poop they are not pregnant if not and they are around males then they are pregnant
Haven’t seen any white stringy poop but I will keep an eye out. So far when they’ve pooped it’s been normal
 
Even more pics. I’m trying my best but of course they love to swim away!

They're all males... getting fry from this group won't happen...
 
How to se
Here is how to sex them, the females will be bigger and have a gravid spot. The fins are also different. Image courtesy wikihow View attachment 102578
I’ve seen this and I try my best to look but I am going a bit crazy trying to figure it out. I keep second guessing myself. Some of my fish are also too dark to see gravid spots so that makes it difficult
