Are you mollies males or females? If they're females, and you get fancy male guppies, they will hybridize. If you want to avoid that, then platies are the way to go. Of course, if you have male mollies, and you get male fancy guppies, you'll be fine. They'll just be disappointed

Right, all my fish are females except the DG. So in the case of getting platies or a platy. With my current stocking how many more could i add (female)?

It's very hard to buy platies that aren't pregnant, but there's a chance that your fish will eat most of the fry, and you'll be able to scoop out any remaining ones. I'd say that you have room for another 7 platies and 2 more cories to fill out their shoal. Do you have a lot of plants? They help to absorb waste.
