I think it is a molly, only unusually colored. Or at least I personally have never seen mollies of this color. Very pretty fish. But then again ... it looks more like a platy to me rather than a molly. Maybe it's a platy?

That is a Variatus Platy, Xiphophorus variatus (or somethin like that ). They are closely related to the regular Platys you normally see (Xiphophorus maculatus), but they grow much bigger, to the size of a molly. They are a sort of "fancy Platy", if you will. I don't know what else you have in the tank, but just so you know these will interbreed with Mollies. Also they like company, so you should get one or two more.
