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.

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.
