I beleive that crossing Swordtails with platys will only produce sterile young. How old is your female? And what species is she?

a pineapple is a color morph of a sword so they should breed as long as your male is a normal male sword(long fin swords can't breed)

Gouramis I feel should be fine unless they start getting aggressive.

As far as swordtails and platies crossing, it is possible and this hybrid is usually no sterile, a number of color morphs swords carry some platy DNA and vice versa with some platy color morphs.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk
