Guppy breeding with a ST?

I have a ten gallon tank with a few guppys and a few platys. One guppy gave birth and two fry survived so I've decided to remove the males to avoid being overstocked. The males now live in my 28 gallon tank. But I've noticed them... Trying to seduce my swordtails? Is this even possible? If they do breed... And the fry survived, what would they be called? Swoppys? I don't even know. It's looks really funny though, the males are less then half the size of my swordtails and they like dance all around her and follow her around.

Not likely. Guppies and mollies will interbreed and swords with platties. Oh and don't be surpised if your guppies have more batches of babies even without the males in there. They can carry and store sperm for months.

Hm thanks, Maybe my guppys just like to annoy the ladies?

I know that they can have fry even without males being in there for a while. I just hope that by the time she drops another batch I'll have another tank the keep them in. Thanks again.
