Swordtail Fry Questions

I woke up this morning to my swordtail giving birth! Its my first time having fry. Only problem is its in my community tank and my quarantine tank is occupied at the moment. I have plenty of hiding places (moss, holes in driftwood) so I'm hoping a couple will survive. How can I get food to the fry without it getting eaten by the other fish?

The moss will provide the fry with food until they get a little bigger! I would keep a close eye on them though because swordtails are known to eat their babies! I have lost almost 2 batches of fry because of the parents eating them! Now i move them into a smaller tank or breeding net until they get larger!
