betta fry sexing at 2 weeks

i've recently picked up some betta, 1 male, 2 females, and i want to eventually breed them. so well in advance, i'm looking to know, i have read the males have to be separated from the community tank at 2 weeks after the fry hatch. how easy is it to tell the males from teh females at this time? i'm guessing something to do with fin size would be part of it? if anyone has pics of fry around this age, can you please post a male and a female so we can see the difference.

thanks!

i think u would need to wait for fun development, as females have short fins and males long

You read wrong. They need to be seperated at 2 MONTHS
