Is my Molly pregnant?

Hey guys. I recently purchased little Melonee and her friend from a pet store. I am wondering whether or not she is pregnant, or if she is just a little fat. I know that balloon belly mollies have large, pronounced chests, but she is noticeably larger than my other male. Is this because they are opposite genders, or is she pregnant? Or just a little big? Thanks for any help

I believe you have 2 different kinds. The one is a Bubble Belly/Balloon Molly, and the other is a regular Molly. Not a pro, but I don't think it's a pregnancy.

Thanks. And the other fish in the picture is a Mickey Mouse platy, the other balloon belly wouldn't stay on the frame. Not the most photogenic

Also, I hate to break it to you, but they are probably both males. You can do a google search to check for yourself to be sure though.
