    I think Molly's go fantastic with Platies :) Mine really seem to get along well, and Molly's are fantastic fish with great personalties! They are known for adding quite a bit to the bioload but welllll worth it imo :)

    As for the amount of fry, I think it can be between 20-50 (occasionally more or less), normally around 30 I think. I may be wrong though ^^
    If you're after any schooling fish you could probably have some neon tetras (the old favorite) in with the Platies, around 8 is best, if not more.

    Corydora catfish on the bottom of the tank, platys higher up. You could get 3-4 panda or bandit corys

    :;snow my paltys had around 75 fry and all are doing well ,but what u say is correct normally around 20 -50 fry and if its the platys first pregnancy more likely to be under 20 fry
