    hello, I bought 5 lyre tail mollies. I asked for all female and they were not all female lol. Got s few babies.. trying to separate now. Can you guys help me identify this one?? I am having a hard time because it doesn’t look like what I believe to be the female mollies but nor does it look like the one male I found... here’s a picture let me know. It’s not chasing any of the females around or anything.

    Looks female to me, the lyretail strain females have fairly long analfins. It would be much smaller and pointy if it were a gonopodium.

    Thank you! Very glad to hear someone else’s opinion. That’s what I thought but was unsure.. the other females don’t have that long of analfins that’s why I was thrown off.

    All in those photos are female. They can have babies if they were ever housed with a male, and keep having more after that even if theres still no male.
