Endlers are basically the same thing as guppies. Males are even easier to tell apart tho because female endlers are very very dull. Here are some diagrams that will help you.

The biggest things that will help you are the gravid spot on the females (which they will probably have if housed with males) and the gonopodium on the males.

Endlers are less likely to eat their young.
