If you have raised any double sword or lyre tail guppies where the males' tails are actually two seperate sections, when do the male fry start to show that trait in their tails?

I have two sets of fry from my males whose tails look like this (not my photo) and I am wondering when I might be able to sex them. So far the oldest are one month old and all look alike--no colors and plain fan shaped tails.  TIA! Lyre-Tail-Guppy.jpg

Thanks, guys. I am used to checking for gonopodiums but of course I am impatient to know whether these fry will have the tail shape/s of my males. I purchased them as a reverse trio and the males' tails are not identical (and no guarantee the female had only ever been housed with just those two males) so I am itching to see the results of the final tail shapes, as well as interested in sexing them for dividing-up purposes. Waiting is hard!
