Fry question!

So i discovered that my swordtail gave birth to 3 little fry! I was wondering if i should movie them into a separate tank or not? They are hiding good in my java moss clump and java moss carpet! Should they be moved or left alone?

Personally I'd move them but it's totally up to you. if you think they will be ok and won't get eaten then I'd say go for it but it's taking a chance. If you wanted to make 100% sure that they survive then I'd move them.
