Random baby in tank?

I have two red tail platys and two dalmatian mollies. Those are the only fish I would assume is would come from? It was a very small baby that I see occasionally swimming around. Tried to get a good pic of it and the dalmatian mollies I *think* theres a male and female but im not sure. The two platys are both male



I think this is a female???

I think this is a male???

Hey there , I dont really think its a molly fry but cant tell for sure , do you have any other fish in the tank besides the plats and mollys?
The pic of the one you think is male is a male your right , you can tell by looking at the bottom fin behind the tummy if it's a male the fin will be much sharper and shorter while a female is more fanned out .
I cant see the bottom fin on the one you think is female in the pic,
This is the only way I know to sex mollys , sory not more help .
The fry / baby fish maybe a molly just not sure , but if those are the only fish in the tank then it has to be , my molly fry are very square headed and they have a very bright silver shade to them and dark ''sploches'' where the lil guy in the pic has a clear look to him / her to me but like I said if those are the only in the tank then it has to be molly .
And congrates on the baby !! whatever it is lol
god bless

It's hard to tell based on the pictures, but it actually looks like the first picture is a male and the second is a female.

As for who the fry is from, I can't say for sure. However, I will say if you have a female molly or platy, they usually come from the store pregnant.
Well congrats on the fry! Guess we'll just have to wait and see who's coloring he/she takes up
