Oh nice I thought it was eel fry, I'd never heard of them breeding in captivity, when I had my 1st tank I had sailfin mollies that bred and it Was fun watching them grow, do you have a spare tank/ fry net for them?

That's fine just use what you got for now and try and sort something out for them when they grow. Hope it goes well, good luck keep posting updates.

So far almost all of them are growing 2 have died but the day they did I found 2 more in my tank hiding. 1 is yellow but has a clamped fin, doing my best to keep her alive so far she has. Most of they time she lies on the bottom of the tank. but they are growing fast! I have to get my 10 g set up soon! I just have no room! Waiting on my dresser to get here!

Last time I had fry (which was bout a year ago) I called petco and they said they would take them. And I have a female platy and she looks like she's bout to have fry. She is being lazy and is really square and that's the way that my balloon was like before she had them so I am watching her too! So I am thinking about putting my frogs into a spare tank for a bit so they won't eat most of the fry like last time! Wow it's not like my fish took all of my time up before but add fry to that...

Yea me too lol maybe the stress of moving home. And that's nice, I'm guessing you get to do most of the work for her?
