Thanks I'm glad to hear that. They told me they were unusual colors for mollies. The one in the first picture is alot bigger then the others.

Some of them look pretty different coloration wise, I agree.

The last picture ,if I'm seeing it correctly, is a female with the twin bar markings on the tail is very unusuall

i have 4 male guppies and bought 5 female mollies some of the mollies have big bellies so hoping they are pregnant.

Unless the mollies were seperated , male from female, they are almost certainly pregnant.
Good luck!

They were in a tank with both yay. Also the one I'm the first picture when I bought it had its gill cover ripped off I've been treating the tank with melafix but will the gill cover grow back
