    Nope, molliyes and swordtails might both be livebearers but swordtails are are in the genus Xiphophorus while mollies are in the genus Poecilia, they are both livebearers and get to a similar size but can't breed, platies and swords can, as they are both in the same genus, but mollies and swordtails can't as they are in different genus
    They may attemp but they can't successfully spawn
