I have 6 in a separate container so far. All of them are flitting and jumping around... Swimming into the walls... And then rest at bottom
This seems to be a healthier batch... I'm happy.

How are you catching them? I've been chasing a fry for a day now and can't get him!! It's driving me nuts! Also where do your platies (& guppies) give birth? The community tank? Or do you have them alone?

I'm still figuring out all of this stuff and i think my platy is pregnant again. I have 2 platy fry that are about 3 weeks old.

I use a small net to scoop them up with... Sometimes need to nudge them or sweep net across water near them to get them to sweep up and catch em.
Usually born in community tank... Or I move mom to her own 10g to birth in...

Aww cute little guys. The top one in the pic looks like he is swimming upside down, but I'm sure that's a reflection.

She's had no more since I put her in 10g so I think I'll put her back in her home... A few of the other fish in there have dark poo, so evidence she had more and they were eaten....

So far.. 12 appearing healthy babies!

Yeah, I stuck him on another thread too. I think guppy also. I put him in my net with 3.5 week old platies, do you think that's ok? I won't hijack your thread anymore.
