Frozen brine? Hikari is pretty expensive for the size bag but it does go a long way.

Good rule of thumb is they should be bigger then the mouth of your biggest fish. Double check your tank though, my fry loved burrowing into the substrate.

Thanks! I was feeding them a mixture of foods I ground up but I just got NLS Small Fry formula last night so we will see how that goes. Any advice. Here's a shot of there home. Oh and I've only lost 1 not 3 like I thought.

Yeah a few dont have full tails i noticed... and the ones that died have been swimming slow since they were born. I always figure with such a big litter that a few if not a majority will die

Found about 5 more dead today so now my lil guys are happily moved to my 1.8 gallon.. all are officially 1 week old. Out of 3 litters.. found 3 more little platys? In my tank and scooped them out as i was cleaning one is very small and another one is actually a lil bigger than the ones i have been keeping in the trap! What a trooper! May post pics in a bit.. trying to let them all get adjusted to their new environments how is everyone else doin?

Yeah i think it was because i had so many in the trap that the ammonia level was getting too high for such a small space and i notice there isnt very good flow through the trap.. hopefully i wont loose anymore :/
