Guppy and molly

If a guppy and molly breed will the offspring be sterile?

Guppy and molly

I do not have guppies or mollies. I have Swordtails and Platies and they have interbred.

Anders247 says that a Guppy/Molly mix would be sterile...I would take him at his word. He has just started on this forum, but is a heavy hitter on other forums.

As far as food, I crumble up flakes for the fry.

That's what I do also I read egg yolk mixed with a little water? I tried it and they ate it all up I shut my filter off while they eat but I think they liked the egg better lol!

Egg yolk has a lot of protein for the guppy fry to develop healthy. I would do it for the first 1-2 weeks until they are bigger and can feed better on flakes.
