Fancy X Feeder Guppy

I have this huge over sized guppy and this super tiny feeder. He is the Biggest Guppy have ever had. he is bigger than the biggest Female I have ever had. The feeder is a little less than half its size. he has been chsen her around. I heard that if a male fancy guppy breeds with a small feeder the fry will be too big for the feeder to handle, is this true?

10 gallon tank - 2 Ghost shrimp, fry, 1 Soft shell turtle, 5 crayfish, 1 baby catfish
10 gallon tank - 1 marbled crayfish in berry
50 gallon tank - 2 male guppies, 1 female guppy, 2 zebra danios, 1 pearl danio, 1 Angelfish, 1 male platy, 2 female platys, 2 silvery minnows
Pond - 1 cooter, 1 RES, 4 goldfish(my baby sis poisoned my pond)

Hopefully, whoever she got busy with, she'll survive the birth and the fry will be okay. :3

The same thing happened with me. My feeder male is trying to breed with my female fancy, but I just can't tell.... I have 2 babies, they are white and hve spots all over them, so I thought they were mollies (my female did shrink) after, but I am rather confused. After looking at some pictures, I can't tell if their gups or mollies.

HELP!

GuppyColorMaker i would say that your guppies are not mollies. In my experience when a feeder and a fancy guppy breed you will get a mix. There are mixes of the feeder and fancy in your fry, is my guess.
