Fry identification

Hi all!

I have just noticed the first fry in my tank.

I did notice my platys were acting a bit strange by burying themselves head first in the substrate. All of a sudden I have 4 fry.

They do look quite strange however. The platy in question is bright orange but the fry are black. Would that be normal? The only other thing I can think of is that I have a blue/black platy and a Cory catfish which may have been pregnant when I bought them.

Any help identifying what the fry are would be great.

I know that its most likely to be platys but the black fry seemingly are making me think its offspring from the cory catfish.

Updated pics of the fry. Anyone have any ideas? Some have orange tips on the tails which is making me think it's fry from the black/blue platy as well as an orange platy which passed a few weeks back.
