Biologically speaking, dogs are different from fish. Whatever species you are talking about, the species if not related will not crossbreed with each other. Fish of related genera however can crossbreed and in some species, it is rarely done.

Litte Fizz: Those photos do show the mollies have the guppy's characteristics. I think it could indeed be a cross between guppies and mollies. Not impressive and reallu ugly in my opinion.

it looks as bad as a mauled fish. i would say either sell it if you find it ugly or keep it. it's your call.

SeaSerpant, I think you misunderstood Little Fizz's posts. The photos she showed us are not hers nor are the fish. The biggest mistake with selling hybrids is you are distributing around the fish of non-pure strain quality whether it is sterile or not.

i agree, they definatly look like molly guppy crosses. i dont find them very attractive myself but like lupin said i wouldnt bring it to my lfs as it might breed and even more impure strains of fish would be out there.

I will be trying...

I will be adding dwarf platy males to breed with enler females. This should provide some extra food in my African black-water tank. I have not found out whether this will be a viable cross yet, but hopefully.
