What kind of babies ? Fry traps usually work ok if there's good water circulation through it, enough space in it and so long as the parents can't get in and the babies can't get out.

Fry often hang near the top, usually they would be hiding in floating plants, but check water parameters to be sure there isn't any ammonia or nitrite, fry are pretty sensitive.

If they are in boxes or keepers that prevent the adults from eating them, they'll be fine even if you have no floating plants. In the wild, fry hide, because the adults do eat them, so it's instinct for them to find something floating to hide in. Don't worry if you have floaters... just keep them in the traps 'til the grow big enough to be safe.
