Drastic Fry Loss

My three female guppies had fry while I was on vacation. The fathers were two ifga show guppies, a hb and a snakeskin.
The fry were eaten totally.
I hope the girls stored sperm, as the males died a month or so ago.
I really wanted these drops to live, the fry were worth 4 to 8 dollars each at my LFS and the females looked like they had about 100 fry for breakfast lunch and dinner.

For anyone breeding 200 dollar guppies, heavily plant the tank and put caves in and feed the fish a lot
Or just don't go on vacation lol
