Male mollies will have a pointed gonopodium while the females have a rounded fin in its place. If a female is pregnant it will have a box shaped belly and look bloated/fat. Hope this helps!

Thanks Quiche, I will check it out in the morning. I didn't know that when I bought them. I did read the females store sperm so if they are female, still could have fry..right?

Yep! Most likely, if you got them from a store, they are already pregnant/storing sperm.

Generally, the recommended ratio for livebearers is 1 male to 2 or 3 females. That means you'd have to buy 5 females- how big is your tank? I don't know if having 7 mollies would overstock it.
