Can you immediately tell when fry have been born, or do they hide too much to see?

Livebearer fry are a bit larger than egg laying fry, but often are hard to see at first. Mine always find a stagnant section of the tank (behind a leaf, in a patch of grass) to hide in. They will be ready for solid food right away, so perhaps invest in a small jar of instant baby brine shrimp. It's cheaply found on Amazon.com and is small enough for their tiny mouths. Best part, that small jar will last a long time.

Weird. One of them is looking more normal shaped now, but I still haven't found fry.

The mother may only have had one or two, especially if this is a first-time pregnancy.

They will be very small and trying to stay hidden, so you may not find them right away.
