Question Can i crossbreed these?

If i have a few platys, a few mollies, and a few guppies male and female of each can and will they crossbreed? i was just unsure and thought that would be really cool since they are all livebearing fish :P oh and does anyone have pictures of the turnouts? and will they fry be able to reproduce or will the be infertile like a liger?

Guppies and mollies can crossbreed what is called muppies. It has to be a female molly and male guppy otherwise the female guppy prego with huge molly fry will die during birth or sometime close to it.

Muppies are said to be infertile. Some believe their lifespan to be shorter though.

Endler's Livebearers and guppies also can crossbreed, but its said their offspring is fertile, yet have a shorter lifespan.

When mixing mollies and guppies, the M/F ratio should always be 1M:2-3F.

Platy can not crossbreed with these guys, however I believe they are able to crossbreed with swordtails.

Mollies & guppies - yes
Mollies & platies - no
Guppies & platies - no
But like has already been said, platies can breed with swordtails
