Why is my male gold flake Molly trying to mate with guppies?

Why is my male gold flake Molly trying to mate with guppies!
He has plenty of female mollies to flirt with. Why the guppies?

It's quite possible for them to cross breed but mostly they'll turn out ugly

Male mollies are relentless! Lol I had a Dalmatian Mollie that would try to impregnate every fish in the tank lol. They breed like rabbits.

Not all cross breeds are ugly. My friend has a cross breed and it's stunning. It's the size of a Molly with a orange, blue and white guppy tail, but the body of the fish is black, it's beautiful. But if you are trying to get good looking guppies desperate the Molly's and guppies because the male guppies will have a go with the female Molly's to
