mixing mollies - Can I keep lyretails, sailfins, and balloon

I currently have 2 lyretail mollies

I want to get another 2-4 more.
I was thinking of mixing some balloons and sailfins with the group.

Can you mix the different molly species - or should I stick to ONLY ONE species?

Also, can the differerent molly species breed?
or do they have be the same species?

Mollies go after their fry rather aggressively IME. If you want to save them, best to either remove the fry or use a breeder trap or provide tons of hiding spots.
