When are guppies sexually mature?

i have 18 2 month and a half old guppies and I was wondering when they will be sexually mature as I would like to separate the females from the males before this happens, but until then I'm quite happy to keep them all together, specially as the males haven't started developing their tails and am worried I might not seperate them correctly.

I would separate them now because males can reach sexual maturity as early as two months of age.
