Mollies & guppies cross breeding?

Hi fellow fish fans
I have a question about my mollies and guppies. It appears that they have interbred, even though I've been told that it's not possible for them to do so . Oh, just had a thought, there are a couple of platties in there too... can they interbreed with guppies?

I've had my 6 foot tank for around 10 years, this is the first time I've seen this kind of colouring on anything except a male guppy. They were bred in the tank, and I've had the same fish in there for a couple of years.
Any thoughts?

Whoa, way cool looking xD

Yup, Guppies and Mollies can breed and Platies and and Swords can breed, though Platy can't breed with Molly or guppies, so no worries there.
Always wondered what a guppy and molly crossed looked like....very neat

Dragon, the question is; how long will they live?

Sorry everyone. I'm gone. I can't use the forum anymore. My health issues are too much. I'll miss you all and I will return some day, just not on this account.

Hmm.....I don't see why they couldn't live normal livebearer lives, I don't think they're unable to reproduce either.....
You see hybrids all over the place, especially in Cichlids, without any harm done in most cases. I do believe I've read that the Sword and Platy cross can live and reproduce, I'd imagine the same would go for the Molly and Guppy cross.
