Fry Care Help

Ok so, my platy gave birth last night while I was gone and when I got back, half of her fry were eaten by my danios but I managed to save 9. She was in bad condition but is doing better this morning. However, 3 survived the night in the breeding net I have hanging in the tank. I would to keep as many alive as I can so I have a couple questions about taking care of them.
•What is a good temperature to keep them in?
•should I keep them in the breeding net or put them in a separate container?
•how much light should they be exposed to?
•how/when/what do I feed them?

If there is any other important info I need please include it! Thanks

For tempature, 78 to 82 degrees is a good temp. One thing you shouldnt do is adjust the temp after the fry are already born. How ever the tank is when there born, keep it that way. I keep mine in a net but u can do either or. Feed them crused(very fine) fish food or baby brine shrimp. Feed then 3 times a day. Good luck

Is it possible for a pregnant fish to break bones after giving birth?
