If you bought them from a tank mixed with males and females, the safe answer is that they are pregnant. They'll probably get a lot fatter than they are before giving birth and their bellies tend to take on a squarish appearance when they're getting very close to having the babies. Make sure they get plenty of vegetable matter. The Omega One Veggie Rounds are a very good food to use for them.

They definitely look pregnant. Most livebearers bought from pet stores come home pregnant. Especially since besides guppies, I've found they don't usually separate mollies, platys, or swordtails by gender.
