you should look for a gravid spot which is right were the anus is. It is a black spot, that's the frys eyeballs.

I really am in shock

At least one survived I had like 40 swordtail babies which all died within a week and I put them in one of those separate container things that float near the top of the tank, so they didnt get attacked just died

That's frequently how it happens. Wasn't it a pleasant surprise?
