The Platy's will probably start to look square at the bottom front too just like the Molly did. Often babies are born in the early hours of morning so check each morning for sure. If you do water changes and you think they are close to dropping, do a water change dropping the temperature by 1-2 degrees. in the wild they often spawn after a cooling rain.
Another sign to watch for is a gravid spot. It is a dark circlular shadow that shows up between the anal fin and the tail and is said to be the babies eyes showing thru her skin as she swells.
Also... even tho she only had maybe 6 this drop....my Swordtail had 2, then 9, then omg I think last weeks was 60 without a word of a lie. Molly fry are rather big compared to Swordtails... not sure about Platy fry.
