Molly gender

I'm sorry to be asking this question. I want to make sure I am looking at this correctly. You tell a Molly gender by the anal fin, correct? I am being told multiple things. One that it's the anal and dorsal fin, and the other is just by the anal fin...
According to the just the anal fin suggestion. Both of the attached pictures contain male mollies, correct?

Mike the knight? Haha

Defiantly males. I tried to get a picture of my females anal fin, but all 5 of them get a little too excited when i walk over for photos. 3 of mine are pregnant ATM. Hopefully other tankmates help curb the upcoming fry.

Wel about the dorsal fin... Not all male mollies will develop a large dorsal. So, I wouldn't focus on that to determine the gender. The anal fin says a lot more...
