You know she might have more in the next few days. Sometimes they don't have them all at once. She still looks really big. What kind of Platy is she? I just bought a new strain at petco a few weeks ago. Panda platy and Bubblebee platy.

I think it could be that shes breed with another type of fish, she was in a community tank at the pet shop.

UPDATE
only 6 out of around 20 babies were born alive the rest were not nomral, they were either not fully formed or were simese twins stuck together, now mumma fish has also died =( might stay away from fish from that pet shop from now on. Hope the babies manage to live.

Sorry to hear about the death of your momma fish. I'm sure that the 6 will be fine. Just feed them crushed flake food thats crushed to a powder form. I use a toothpick and dip it in the water first then in the container of powder food then in the water again.I would feed the baby fry 2-3 times a day.
