wat kind of fish is this?

on christmas day i found a baby in my tank but only one (i assumed they others were eaten or not born yet) i put it in with the babies i had from previous births but it looked a bit different. my other fry were guppies and grey colored, but this one was an orange color. i dont know what kind it is and was hoping someone else would. in the tank i have a pair of platies, could it be one of them? there is also 1 molly and 1 swordtail. could it have been an interbreeding?

get inbreeding.

i don't think they get huge,
there may only be a slight differance in shape,
perhaps look a little fuller.

Swordtails and mollies cannot interbreed. All fish of Xiphophorus genus however are able to crossbreed with each other. Swordtails and platies can cross with each other thus resulting in Xiphophorus variatus.
