Question 2 new babies

I have 3 female guppies and 2 female platies and this morning I just saw 2 new babies. They dont have any color so I think they are guppies but how do you tell who is the mom?? Out of the 3 guppies I thought 2 were pregnant but they did not look ready to drop yet. So of course they are still in the tank just like last time. I was hoping to see the process this time

CONGRATS!! but there is no way to tell who the mother is... sorry to tell you, but you must be so happy!!!

My Tanks:
20 Gallon Community Tank
5 Gallon Guppy and Fry tank

SOON TO COME!!
A 55-75 gallon tank, hopefully

*Remember, its not how big a tank is, its how hard you worked on that small tank.

wow if that was me i would be happy and excited to see who the mother is. it would be cool to see the transformation of babies into adults. look up guppy and platy fry on google or something maybe u will find what the baby looks like. i still cant find my baby fish maybe they got eaten do they hide under gravel like little rocks?

I tried to get pics, they are not that great. The first is one of the previous batch starting to color up, the second one if you look closely are some of the new babies.
