Talking Huge platy had loads of fry

My platy has been huge for about a month and finely she gave birth last night.
I saw her give birth in the tank so then i scooped her up and put her in a container with some plants to give birth to the rest of the fry in peace. Not sure how many she had in the tank but i did see 2 just after i moved her and today i couldn't find them

I took some pictures of her before when she was huge and 2 pictures of the fry, which you can count in the pictures to be 62 fry!

This is the 4th lot of fry any of my fish have given birth to over a span of 2 years even though i have had lots of plants, clean tank and ratios of 1 male:2 or 3 females.
