Question about molly fry

So I'm finally able to somewhat get back into fish breeding! I'm currently working with a somewhat bottlenecked population of black lyretail mollies (all the fish except one female have died off). So far, the tank's doing pretty well. I've got about 80 or so fry (big momma), and I'm avidly hatching out brine shrimp. I haven't had this many fry since the convict cichlids back in high school!

However, I'm noticing that some of the molly fry have silvery stomachs. They aren't see through, so I know it's not a rotifer issue, but I'm really trying to go for all black fish with lyretails, and maybe a bit of gold dust edging. Should I cull the silvery stomach'd fry? Or should I wait for a while?

So many fish/plants/inverts to keep, not enough aquaria.
