Platy or guppy confusion!

wow intresting senorio you have there, from the pictures though she does look like a platy possibly a molly (?) ( i dont really know mollies well).
im not sure that a guppy and platy can interbreed though, guppies and mollies can, and swordtails and platies can interbreed not sure about any others. good luck :D

Guppies and platies will never crossbreed with each other as both are from different genus. Your fish is a most likely a molly.

Or it could be the guppy/molly hybrid. ...I can't figure out why else a molly would be in a batch of assorted guppies otherwise.

looks like a mollie to me. i've never seen one that color before though, so it might be a hybrid, but its definitely not a pure guppy.

I wonder how it gone in the batch of guppies??? Must have jumped from a nearby tank at the wholesaler.
The male guppy is very interested in it and I have seen the mating! I doubt I will amount to anything...

That's a molly. I got a bunch of mollies with a batch of 3 dozen feeder guppies I got a couple of months ago. Gorgeous little fish. The females are pushing an insh and a half now, and the males about an inch. Really looking forward to seeing how these develop.

Very cute regardless, your tank looks sick too! How about a full tank shot? :D
