Question Deformed molly fry

Hi, I'm new to this forum so I'm not really sure how this works, but I have one ten gallon tank and one three gallon. They're both fully cycled and I've had the ten gallon for about a year now. There's one fish in the three gallon- a male balloon molly who I had to separate because my mollies were breeding. My female molly has given birth about four times, the first time in July. I still have two fish from her first birth (I've given all the others away) and they are both deformed. I can tell one of them is a female, but I can't tell for the other one. I really can't have them breeding again so can someone please tell me what sex they think it is (see attatched pic) Thanks!

That one is a male. Although I would recommend euthanizing the fish so you don't spread the deformed species.

Thanks so much. I think what I'll do is put the fish in my other tank with the male balloon molly.

+1 You don't want to breed a deformed fish but if you have a tank that you don't have females in or you are not planning on using for breeding he should do alright.
