    As far as I know...all the livebearer males have a gonopodium...

    ...I like it! Makes it easy to know what kind of a sex ratio you have...

    You should always have approx. 3 females to 1 male...

    I much prefer platies over mollies for some reason. I just like the splash of color they add to a tank, I guess.

    I agree! Very pretty fish. And what little kid can resist a brightly colored fish with Mickey Mouse on it?

    Always good to ask!

    The males have the gonopodium...that's the 'penis-like' anal fin. The females have the rounded, 'normal-looking' anal fin...

    Hope that helps!
