The breeder net should only hold the fry for 2-3 days. After that you should put them in a cycled isolation tank until they are big enough to not fit into the mouths of other fish. Another option is to put lots of plants that can hide the fry in the main tank and hope for the best. But that is taking a risk.

How cute! This is how they should look after about a month. Those 2 white ones are from one of my Dalmatian Molly's.

They won't grow enough in 2-3 days.

Yeah that's why I'm saying so can't I not leave the fry in the breeding net longer than 2 or 3 days?

what i think Dragon.goby, is trying to say is that they will have to stay in there more than 2-3 days. a good rule of thumb is if the the fries are smaller than the mouth of adult mollies, then they are still too small.
