Fish identification

Apologies if this is the wrong area.

There are some fish I'm hoping someone can identify. Gonna try and attach 3 pics. Dunno how they will turn out tho.

1 of the pics has a tiny little thing with black spots and the 2nd has 2 fishies a bit bigger. One with an orange vertical strip at the end of it's tail fin. The 3rd is my best attempt to get a clear pic of the rest of the fish but since when do fish sit still for photos? Lol.

Also as far as the itty bitty fishies. Some haven't grown in months and the rest have grown but barely. Dunno if that helps.

The pond they are from has such a large variety that I think the locals dump their unwanted aquarium fish there. So I wouldn't be surprised if there are...unique fishies.

Also if it helps I live in the deserts of the Southwest U.S.A. and yes I know that some local fish are illegal to own. That is why I would like to get another opinion on what kinds of fishies these are. So I don't unwittingly keep fish that are illegal to own. Thank you in advance.

The 2 larger fish appear to be a Molly variety but I can't identify exactly what type. Both appear to have gonopodiums so they would be males so no worries about them having any babies.
The other fish could be anything from a Guppy to an Endler to a Gambusia. Since they are wild from a pond, my guess would be Gambusia but since you mentioned the pond having such a large variety of fish in it, it's a guess at best. Once people start mixing the 3 different varieties, they could all be "mutts" or hybrids.

Hope this helps.
