Here's a pic of one!

keep her in a breeders pin in the tank and as far as sucking up the fry I would just use a net and swirl it around to get the build up. not until they are a 3rd of moms size can you use it, since they aren't to strong of swimmers until then.

Found this tiny Platy fry in the bucket of old water from my tank. Must have gone through the syphon out into the bucket. So glad I also had some gravel in there that my husband questioned, so I looked around the bucket. This little one was swimming on the top. I I scooped it and have it in a pint container. Changing water every day and now have a little plastic bush to make it feel safe. Been feeding a little First Bites a few times a day measuring with a toothpick, stir the food it up a bit so some Click image for larger version

ID:	237444falls.It's been a week and I think it's grown a bit, was only about a centimeter. I'm going away next week so I will transfer this one to a one gallon tank so water won't need changing while I'm away (a week). My neighbor will come in once or twice a day to feed. I really want this little one to survive. How's my plan sound?

I can't put it in my main tank as I have a Betta in there. I'm sure he'd bite thru a net to get this one

So I'm curious, what do most of you guys do with all the fry? Do you keep buying tanks to house them all? Sell them to LFS? Give them away to family/friends?

sam180, we do all of that if we have lots of fry. The batches of fry can be large, and in 6 months the fry will be able to have fry, so the population increases very quickly.

Post fry pictures here!!!

I bought 4 mollys today and put them in my tank at 11am and buy 9pm I had 20 fry swimming around hiding for their life, as I have no breeder pen(one coming Tuesday). So I got like 25 for the price of 4, but I will say I can only see about 7.... But do have another molly who looks ready to pop!!! Hopefully I can get the breeder pen before she starts... I have plants and stuff they are hiding in but one of my mollies is like the dam predator!!!
