They look like PLATY ( live bearers) to me. These breed   as often as every 4-6 weeks with fry born live and free-swimming and up to 80 fry per batch. Fry grow quickly and it's easy to be overrun.  Sad

Those seem to be two ladies though, so if you have no other adult fish you shouldn't be getting any more fry for now at least.
They could also be sword tails because the fish on this photo look slightly longer than platies, it doesn't really matter though as long as you do not combine platies and swordtails as they will readily interbreed, which would cause problems.
