Fry Net (DIY?)

So I just noticed I may have a pregnant Platy. I was wondering, using things around the house, what I could possibly use to make a fry net / holder that would sit in the tank? Any ideas appreciated

You can use a plastic container, eg ice cream, with tiny holes poked in it.

Either side at the top you can secure a strip of styrofoam to the rim by feeding rubber bands or appropriate string through holes made in the edge.

Or you can use small blocks of styrofoam on all 4 sides with a large rubber band stretched around all the blocks ....
