What type of fish is this?

My dad got a pair of these one weekend. (One died a week after) but this one is still alive and kickin'. I just never found out what it is.

Second question is: how can you tell if it's male or female? Same way as platies or mollies? (I know those pics aren't clear enough I'll try to get more later.)

Since it's not letting me put more pics in my original posts, here are better pics for this fish for determining if it's male or female: Click image for larger version

It's a balloon molly. It's not spreading it's fins out, so it's hard to sex it, but judging from the last pic, I would guess female. Can you get pics of it with fins more spread?

You sure it's a bubble belly? Because I got 3 yesterday and they look nothing like that? Click image for larger version
