I know there are cases like bloodparrots that are hybrids but in the cause of the Molly and Platty from all the materials I have read online it suggests it can't be done... I really boils down to if their genetic makeup is close enough to for the male to fertilize the eggs of the female. With those two I don't think it's the case.

theres more cases. the fact they are livebearers is even more of a chance that it can be done.

I'd like to see it if it has been done, would make a good study in gentics IMO. I don't know how easy it would be to do in a home aquaria.

If you do anything post your findings! Also clean out you inbox so I can pm you a question about LEDs.

Ahh, the elusive muppy. Always rumored, but I sure haven't seen one. Maybe you could artificially inseminate, but I doubt that as well, groups of scientists artificially inseminate livebearers all the time, still hadn't seen a muppy. What were you wanting to get out of your platy/Molly hybrid anyhow?

Well I have mentioned before I have never owned a male Molly and I got some mixed Molly fry from my brother, four survived and all turned out female. I continued breeding guppies and decided that the mollies were too large and wouldn't want them eating all my fry so I decided not to pursue the Molly breeding. Anyway... I end up with a batch of fry in my tank and as they get older they look less and less like guppies. They retained the exact coloration and mannerisms of my guppy fry. I have a picture, looks like a Molly to me but then I am certain the mother had never been in contact with a male Molly?

Livebears can have multiple batches of fry from being fertilized once by a male.
