Baby Platy Care

Hello! I have only had my 10 gallon tank with 2 platys for about a week and a half. I have 1 male and 1 female currently and they have already had babies. They ate all of the fry except one which I would like to keep if possible. I have caught it and it is in a bowl outside of the tank. Is it possible to raise it in a bowl until it gets big enough to turn lose in the tank? I can change its water daily, I just need to know if it can be done. If not, what cheap solutions would you suggest?

no, to little water. do you want to get another tank. if not, get a net breeder at lfs or petsmart, or petco. place it in the tank and raise the fry in it.

The breeding net is a great idea. If you want your future fry to live you can put the mother in a net breeder so the babies can hid so the mother doesn't eat them.
