Hi and welcome! Are you talking about sunburst platys? Platys are live bearers which means they have live fry (babies) not lay eggs. With fry you need to keep them in very clean fresh water and feed them regularly. Very finely crushed flake food 3-5 times a day will be enough for them. As the others said, buy a breeder box/fry saver to keep them in in the main tank. What other stock do you have in the tank and what size is it?

That's is the unfortunate thing. The angels and the platys will eat the fry if they can catch them. If you provide them with lots of cover (plants fake or live) a few might make it in the main tank.
