Oreo Sword Breeding

Recently i bought some Oreo Swordtails and decided to breed them. Now i have i good number of Oreo fry i want to breed the males with some Female Candy Cane Platys, Red Wags & Mickey Mouse tails and hopefully get some different strains.
I realise that the females can hold sperm for some time so how long will it be before i start to see the Males Oreo's color in the fry ?

Basically im asking if the females have to use up the sperm they already have in them from previous males or can they "dump" old sperm for new ?

I would also like to know since im using up all my java moss to make a moss background if i could use some nylon shower body washer thing (dont know what they are called) in the tank for the fry to hide ?

for a hiding place for the fry, i'd recommend a floating plant (real or fake). i'd be worried about using a scrubber thingy (i don't know what they're called either) because i'd have no idea if they are treated with something and no idea if they could be adequately cleaned. i just added a bunch of Water Sprite to my tank, and so far it is doing better than anything else i've had as far as live plants.
