    IMG_0481.JPGIMG_0485.JPG Hi guys!

    Just got my mollies today (petsmart) and was told they are all male, however, after some research, I'm wondering if one of the silver lyretails is female. I'm including pics. One of them (bottom) gets chased by my male Dalmatian lyretail.

    Thank you!!

    The bottom belly fins in the male Molly has a stick like tubes while the female doesn't.

    That's a female. (Unless i'm seeing it wrong)

    Which one? :)

    The bottom one for sure
    Top one kind of does. Can I have a better picture of the top one?
    Well out of my 13, my 12 females look like them and Peaches(the male) doesn't

    Here they are again. The one at the bottom is the one in question.

    Thanks guys! Do you think there's a chance she's pregnant?

    Yes, she has a gravid spot and she's been exposed to males. Females can hold sperm up to 6 months to a year. I strongly suggest you further research Mollies.
