New Fry!!!

I bought a swordtail yesterday because she looked pregnant. I put her in a net last night because she was laying around the bottom of the tank and I wake up to 5 fry!!!! I have no idea what I'm doing. Lol. I have been researching some. I don't know how long to keep her in there. I hate that part. I don't want her to eat the fry. However so far, so good. It's a homemade net, so it's no particular safe for the babies.

Well they like to eat brine shrimp or if you want to give them flakes, make sure you smash the flakes up into dust pretty much. The net looks okay, but if you want a breeder net, they sell them almost everywhere for like 5 bucks. You can keep the babies in the breeder net until they are larger/big enough for the other fish not to eat them. Left in the tank without a net, they will be eaten and sooner rather than later.
