Swordtails come in loads of different colour variants. You can get bright red ones, orange ones, white, green, black and more. They also have different tail variants like the double sword (which is what you have).

There are lyretailed ("double-sworded") varieties of swordtails. Your fish could have been lyretailed black mollies, but in that case both fish would have a lyretail. I'd guess they are swordtails. How big are they?

Yeah its definitely a lyretail swordtail as Ive got one with a top sword, bottom sword (tail) and 1 on the dorsal fin and the analfin. I also had a lyretail female but she died.
