How to feed platy fry?

How do I feed my baby platy? Haven't had fry yet. I wanna know because one of my platy has a gravid spot. I know parents will eat them though. Do yo think parrot cichlid will eat them???

I just crush up flake food and feed them that. I leave the fry in the tank but I have tons of hiding places. About 6-8 fry survive each batch

Female fish gives birth to about 80 fish right? Plus random question when your fish gave birth did you put sponge over filter?
