Sexing them is easy at the size they appear to be.

Male


Female

Looks to me like you have a LOT of girls! I even think the first one with the nice orange caudal with the cobra spots is a little girl. The gonopodium LOOKS triangular, not wee-wee shaped

the first one is a little boy, the cup I put him in for the picture must have distorted it a little bit, but yeah I definitely have a LOT of females. I know how to sex, its just harder with the 2nd drop because they are all the same exact color so I have to look closer than with the first drop.

I figured that it could be the cup.

For some reason, we get large drops of girls. Maybe that's just a guppy thing? More girls would make sense since 1 male could fertilize a large group of females

I think it's a temperature thing, but could very easily be what you are thinking as well!
