Keep temperature around 25 degree celcius and change 25% water in alternate days.

The babies grow very quickly. I hope there is plenty of space for the fry to hide.

Get some moss, or some bunch plant that grows rapidly. Get some snails that help clean excess food, and help keep the tank full of infusoria, even livbearer fry will eat microscopic critters. Get some vinegar eels (i dont have) if u know someone who has them, and microworms (i have and have distributed arond to several serious fishkeepers). Hikari flakes ground up fine enough are good too, as is lettuce leaf frozen and thawed.

Sushant's WC advice is excellent and so is the sponge filter part.

crushed flake should not be the only food because a lot of it is so small, it can only pollute the water. Crushed flake + snails is better.
