I need help. I previously posted about my fry when they were only a week old and most determined they were swordtail fry because she was indeed pregnant. But at the time i also had a female bumble bee platy who i recently purchased and unsure if she was pregnant. Now that they are starting to get colors i noticed 2 with black heads. Below i pictured my 2 adult females and best pictures i can get of my fry. Can someone helo determine the type?

Definitely seeing platy body shape on a lot of those fry. None of our other fry made it a month to remember what they looked like at that age(hungry barbs).

So strange because i was able to save 6. Also had a female guppy. So got 1 guppy fry, possibly 4 platy fry, and 1 swordtail all born on same day 7-2. Then on 7-30 exactly 28 days later i have found a bunch of fry once again swordtail was only one that changed shape and still to early to tell colors or anything

Picture #2 seems an orange female with a short body like amaculatus platy but the head says swordtail. She might be a cross between swordtail and platy in this case. Picture #3 shows a dark stretched bodyshape like a swordtail. PIcture #4 is hard to tell from that angle to see wether it's a platy ot swordtail. All the rest look like platies.
