Default Sexing Leopard Geckos

My 2 are aprox 6 months old and 33g. Can they be sexed at this age? I can try and get some pics up if so.

I was told both are female but as they are housed together I want to be sure and can separate them if they are not.

I've tried having a look myself but would like help.

If either of them has a v-shaped row of preanal pores, it will be male. Also a pair of bulges either side of the underside of the tail base, but I don't know what age those develop.

There are some good guides on Google with clear pictures showing you what to look for. At 6 months, you should be able to sex them fairly accurately.

If they're housed together, you will probably be advised to separate them anyway (regardless of sex).
