I think her avatar pic is a lung fish? I am probably wrong, but thats my guess.

No, unlike Blood Red Parrots, where only the males are infertile, both sexes of muppies are infertile, thus makes it not possible for a guppy, molly, or another muppy to reproduce with a muppy.

Its a caeciliean lol. Nothing can breed with a muppy/golly as stated above. Its just not a cross that can be achieved. You can occasionally get a muppy as an F1 generation, but its very very unlikely. Even if the fish are actively mating with eachother the cross is unlikely. That particular hybrid is a deadend though viably.

Well, Actually you can use male mollies to female guppies, I have been breeding male sailfin mollies to female guppis for 1 year and no issues....I have tried it with female mollies and male guppies too....and I found its better to use male mollies and female guppies for better results in color and fin size of the muppies

Using a female guppy is dangerous as the young is too large and can kill the mother during birth. That's why its recommended the other way, male guppy & female molly.

male and female muppies are said to be infertile and unable to reproduce.
