adult platys stomachs turning white!

Hi guys I am new to this site!

I had 2 female & 2 male platys in a ten gallon for 5 months now. 3 months ago one of the platys had babies. I took out the fry and put them in a 5 gallon to grow old enough so the adult platies wouldnt eat them. 7 of them have survived! Today I had to move the 10 gallon to my boyfriend house. And decided to add the 7 baby platies into the 10 gallon with the 4 adult platies.

I kept half of the original 10 gallon water and put new water in to fill the rest.
I added the fry in first and then added the adults in. Everything is going fine between them all, but my 3 of my adult platies stomachs have lost color and turned almost white.
Is this because of stress?
I am a little concerned.

Thank you!

Welcome to the forum, I've never had platies so I wouldn't really know, but people would benefit from seeing a pic if you can post one

I don't know if you can tell in this picture well. But they are swimming at scattery and its hard to get a picture.
I also thought it may be the new light bulb I'm using? I am kind of unsure. I was using a canopy with LEDs in them before and now I am just using a light like this ....

cause when I turned it on to take a picture that's when the fish went nuts!
