Your high fin platies are gorgeous. All the LFS in my area sells them for an insane $6.99 each. One thing I wanted to point out was that all your platy varieties are going to interbreed and leave you with little baby mutts. Especially with a rarer form like the hi-fin, you might want to isolate strains.
Also, I'd definitely suggest a little more plant cover to hide your fry. Or are you using a seperate breeding tank or breeding box?
Is that a dwarf sag hiding behind the driftwood? Is it getting any light back there? Dwarf sag is fairly low growing (mine stayed around 4 inches), so you might consider moving that. Vallisneria could be an option for the background behind the driftwood, as they grow well in the harder alkaline water that the livebearers like. And you might consider tying some mosses to the driftwood to add green and supply a hiding place and feeding place for renegade fry. Java moss is easy to grow. I ordered mine from a hobbyist on aquabid or ebay, cant remember which, because I couldnt find it locally.
