What's the chance of my fry surviving?
 
I have nine five-ish week old platy fry, and I was wondering what their chances of surviving would be in the tank with all the other fish. Currently they're in their own five gallon tank. I have two platies, a male betta, two guppies, and two neon tetras. How many do you think will survive? Thanks.

What decor is in the main tank?

If it's planted, or there are places to hide, I can guarantee some will survive.

I have guppies in a 10G, moderately planted tank...
I started with 4 guppies, and now I have about 15 adults and 40 fry.
(And I give guppies away to everyone I know.)

Before the tank was planted, it was gravel and a large rock as the only decor, and some fry still always survived.
