Stocking question - Platy Fry

Okay, so here's my question. A while ago, my platys had babies. I moved the babies over to a separate tank, and in the end ended up with about 30 fry.

Recently, I set up a breeder net inside my main tank, and I want to know how many platy babys I could keep in the main tank with respect to the bioload, especially when they're grown up. Here is my tank's current stock:

25 gallon, planted
6 corys (3 green, 3 peppered)
5 tetras (3 black skirt, 2 white skirt)
3 adult platys

How many babies could I let grow up in the tank safely?

If fhe green corys you have are emerald green corys then I think you are at the max for stocking. I would not recommend puting any more fish in your tank.
