Welcome to AA.

It depends. She won't drop if she is stressed. I recommend getting a fish breeder. You can feed the babies (when the come) Super fine crushed flake at a minimum. Lots of people will tell you this is inadequate, but when i was breeding guppies, they flourished on this, and became tank-ready in less than 6 weeks.

A good little blurb about breeding live bearers
