Where did the frys go?

So last night, i put my pregant mickey platy into the breeder net because she were about to give birth.I put some plants into the breeder net so the frys can hide. When i woke up today, i saw my mickey platy's stomach turn back to skinny, so i thought she gave birth last night. But I look around and didnt see any frys. So i'm wondering where did they go? Did she ate it all? thanks

She probably ate them. My platies were always voracious fry eaters; I've literally seen one pop out a fry and then spin around and eat it. I usually left mine in the tank to give birth with plenty of hiding places for the fry, then I'd fish each one out and remove it to a 10 gallon as I spotted them.
