If you want two dreads in a fish tail then you're best waiting until they're beginning to mature, as they won't be able to lock up if the hair isn't free to move around. Plus dreads tend to shrink up to half the length of your hair in the first year as they tighten, so the fish tails would get a bit nobbly and weird even if the dreads did tighten. So yeah, wait until they begin to feel solid which usually takes anywhere from 7 months to a year for most.
Also, if you're getting them done then make sure your loctician does NOT use wax nor interlocks your dreads (pokes them through their own root).
I'd recommend taking a look at our FAQ which you can find as the top board in the forum list or via the navigation bar if you're on the desktop site.
