I'm new! Are my fish males or females or both?
 
my mollies are hard to tell does anyone know?

you have two females... there is no extended anal fin on either thus both females

Here is a pic of a male molly... see the more straight fin he has rather than the fan like fin the female has. She drops and raises it at times, closing it up but you can see the male is very different.

I was thinking male and female.

Christople 05-08-2011 12:02 AM

Oh well never had mollys so you are most likely right. I am only good at guppies and platys and in person.
