Will black molly (m) and sailfin molly (f) mate?

Had the 2 silver sailfin Molly females about a month and have not once seen the black male Molly chasing / trying to mate with them. He only chases the black female Molly. Do these breeds mix?? Is so why do you think this is happening?

I don't see why they couldn't, they are both a type of livebearers from the Poecilia family.

That's what I figured but no interest in the female sailfins thus far. it's like they are keeping to their own kind or something. He is now the only male Molly with 3 females available to him. Additionally one of the sailfin females is a bully. She chases and tries to nip all the other mollies. I can understand why the black male Molly doesn't want to mess with that one!
