males are thinner and females are larger
You can tell the sex of the mollies by looking at their anal fins. Females will have a fan shaped one and males will have a pointed anal fin.
this is a female:
the dalmation one is a male in this pic:
Yes, livebearer males have a modified anal fin called a gonopodium...while females have a 'regular' looking rounded anal fin...quite easy to tell apart, which makes it nice for sexing.
You should have 3-5 females per male.
