Hello again neon...
If you'll drop a lot of individual stems of floating plants like Anacharis Hornwort and Pennywort, you'll have a much higher fry survival rate. When they are born, fry immediately swim to the surface for a breath of air and find a place to rest and hide from aggressive adults. If there is a lot of thick plants covering the surface the little ones can swim up into the mass.
Attached is a pic of one of my Guppy tanks. The surface is completely covered in floating plants. With this much area to hide, I have a lot fry that survive. After a week or two, the fry are large enough to swim around without being a larger fish's lunch.
