Platies, Molly's & Swords

I bought at the LFS what I thought was 5 female swords. Now that they're getting bigger I think I have 2 mollies. 2 of the fish are so much, alomst double the size, of the other 3. They look exactly the same except the sixe.

were they the same size when you boguht them? how long have you had them? swords are actually more like platties than mollies. is it possible that they are actually platties? or platty/sword hybrids?

They were the same size. 2 of them just got huge! I'll post some pics tonight for everyone to see. I've had them for about 4 months now.

it can be hard to tell with pics because of mix breeding

true but hopefully we can eliminate whether it is a molly or not. platties/swords will be difficult though even with a picture
