Has anyone had personal experience on Muppys?

Last night i took the divider out of my 20 gallon cause im sure my babies are big enough now to be with the other fish, and i took out the biggest fish i had in that tank just for the safty of the babies, i had 1 Male guppy in that tank, and i decided to add my 2 mollies from my other tank, and my male guppy started spawning with my white molly, She has never been pregnant, so in 21 days i will really know if it is possible, but i just wanted to see if any one else has had first hand experience?
Anyone have pictures of what their Muppy's looked like as they got older?

Off the top of my head I have read somewhere about guppies and mollies interbreeding, but it is probably pretty rare and i'm almost positive all of the offspring would be sterile and may have health issues. No clue about the appearance lol i have never seen one.

What about Mollies and Platties? I have a male and female of both species.

From what I have read mollys and guppies can interbreed, the come from the same genus Poecilia, and swordtails and platys can interbreed they come from the genus Xiphophorus. The offspring of these mixes of fish are considered to be sterile and getting rid of the offspring can prove difficult as most LFS will probably not take them. Also if interbreeding you need to make sure that the female is bigger than the male.

Ya ive read lots about it to, and actually i think i have 2 sword/platy crosses cause to me (i could be wrong) their tails dont look as long as pure swords tails look, But thankfully it was male guppy to my female molly so of coarse female was larger, i just wasnt planning on them to breed because my male guppy never took action on her or any other female molly's before. so hopefully she isnt pregnant or hopefully she doesnt have to many babies so i wont have to worry about rehoming them, But im sure my LFS would take them off my hands because he does have a tank of colorless guppies or the guppy/endler hybrids. The tank is all feeder fish so im sure they would put them in there
