my mollie seems to have the analfin or a female sometimes, and then it goes straight like a boys.. i looked at some pictures of the boy moollie vrs. the girl mollie on sexing livebearers but my mollie seems to do both of those fins. I am pretty sure you guys tell this by second analfin closest to the tail right? i need to know because i am getting another mollie tomorrow

As I'm picturing that in my mind... it might be a boy. However do you have a picture of it? If so then that could help alot.

yes, the female's analfin is round and looks a tiny bit like a leaf.

Hi I believe if you lookunder the livebearer topic there is a thread about sexing them which has a pic. the pic works for platy, guppy, and mollies. Hope that helps.

Hi

Sounds like a female. When their anal tail is folded, it can look like a male. A male's on the other hand, can never change shape. A gonopodium is a gonopodium as we say in Mollyland! So my verdict is: female.
