i personally dont use breeder traps anymore as the stress can make them either hold fry, or abort the pregnancy... i would just make sure there are tons of hiding places and check for babies every morning as she is likely to drop at night. i got 11 fry from my last female to drop this way. you wont get all, but with lots of hiding places u should get most! once you see she has dropped just scoop the fry out and put them in the trap to keep them safe.

It is stressful for them to be in breeder traps, see if you can scoop the fry up and put them in the breeder when she drops, it should be soon.
