Molly fry dying

I have had many successful broods with 2 of my 3 females but my 3rd female always ate her fry so I got her a breeder net & when it was near her time I put her in. She delivered about 20 fry and 14 have died since they were born last night. Water parameters are same as always.
Is it possible she has problems breeding or that they were born too early? There were 2 yellowish spheres that I thought could've been undeveloped eggs??
They are kept with my black molly fry who are only 2 days older so it's not the water.

If the breeder net doesn't get some flow it could be an issue. More likely is that she stressed and the fry were not ready to be born. Some females just don't do well being moved.
