provided they actually breed which is not very likely, the female endler will probably die from the stress of the larger fry. i wouldn't recomend it.

i agree with gunmetal... the babies might be too big for the endler female. i wouldnt try to breed those 2.

Infertile eggs, If the eggs turn white there infertile, so no hybrid fish

mollies, swordtails, and platies will cross breed. Ive seen the results. The pet store I work at gets bags of live bearer feeders and they are pond raised. Ive seen marbled molly swordtails, mickey mouse platy/swordtails...etc, it is possible though

Hi I just read your comment that mollies and guppies can't cross breed, well if that is the case then where did the 40+ extra fish appear in my tank ???
the guppies are female and I have a male black mollie who has mated with 4 of my females so far 2 of which are on their 2nd litter as we speak.
the female offspring look like guppies some of which have a bottle green tint to the body rather than clear, with orange fins and tails and the male offspring have blue bodies and orange long fan tails, a bit like miniature japanese fighting fish.

WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IS- a friend has in her tank 2 barbs, danios, mollies and some of my last litter of babies which are not big enough to breed yet. she has found today baby fry in her tank today. the fry are small but long and clear... which fish have cross bread.. any suggestions ????

Mollies and guppies can cross breed- both belong to the genus Poecilia.

Platies and swordtails can crossbreed - both belong to the genus Xiphophorus.

Of these 4 species, ones from different genus can not cross breed. It is also highly supported that mollyxguppy hybrids are sterile as these are rare. Most all common or fancy swordtails and platies seen in shops are considered hybrids, not pure species.
