It is sometimes possible to crossbreed members of different species in the same genus, and almost impossible to breed members of the same family not of the same genus. These are not only two different families, but in different Orders. The plumbing just ain't compatible.
I like how you ended that with, "The plumbing just ain't compatible."

Something else to consider with your molly, if fins are much fancier... there could have been a lyretail and/or sailfin molly in the heritage somewhere, and this fish has enough of those traits to show them in fin structure.

As was said by the others, mollys and gouramis CAN NOT breed with each other, it is physically impossible.

I can't wait to see a picture!! This will also help the rest of us to sort through the possibilities for you, too.

Please remember one other thing: The only stupid question is the one not asked.
