Pregnant or Fat Ballon Molly

I can't tell if they are males or females, so not sure if they are fat or pregnant. Click image for larger version

From the photo, it seems like they are all female. If you can take a picture of the side, it would be easier to tell than front view.

Lol yes I have 2 tattooed balloon mollies. My 6yr old girl has been asking for a long time. I hate the idea of this, but my girls to young to understand. Anyway I hope these pics help. What I was told is only the orange one and maybe red tattooed are boys others are supposedly girls. But I don't believe the stores anymore .Click image for larger version

U can look at the anal fins. Males have a pointed anal fin and females have a round anal fin. That will make u know their gender. Oh, and pregnant molly will have a very large belly. U will know yourself when the belly is getting half bigger than before (if u remember hoq your molly was when u bought it).
The orange molly is definitely a male.

then i would be willing to guess the others are all females. the white and dalmation are huge, but i am new with balloon mollies so i am not sure what to expect and unlike guppy you can not see a gravid spot.
