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.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

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.

Note: This is an OLD thread!

I wanted to leave the link to my Muppy Fry March 2016 my Molly had some and we had no idea why her fry didn't look like her and apparently the father was a Guppy!

The whole saga is here:
