Will they cross-breed?
 
Just got Silver & Cremesicle mollies... It was a spontanious buy, I went in looking for good color to add to my tank. Will the two cross-breed, or am I safe? I'd like the fry to maintain the colors of the parents.

Mollies will mate with other mollies with little regard for shape or color. Is also quite possible/probable that female mollies will have been with other male mollies unless you buy them from a breeder and as such ,they could produce any coloration of fry.

They will indeed cross-breed.

Not that it's a bad thing... Sometimes the offspring have creative and unexpected results...
