I have one of my female platies isolated right now as she is in labour I saw her drop one fry outside of the breeding tank so I'm hoping she'll drop the rest very soon so I can let her go before she gets to stressed out. Any tips?

The babies are doing good swimming around. Anyone have a way I can clean the bottom of the breeding tank that their in? Without having to take them out there some un eaten food sitting at the bottom

Glad to hear it And to clean the breeding tank I would use a piece of airline tubing to suck up any debris.

A gravel vac is gonna be way to big and will most definitely suck up the fry. That's why I suggested the airline tubing. I'm pretty sure it's small enough that the fry can't fit through. If you have any, give it a try.

Hey man, great post!
I've had my 25g for a while. My sister has like an 3g I think? Anyway, she had an Platy and an Molly in there, and guess what? Babies! Platy gave birth during water change (she was in an bucket, didn't know she was pregnant). So I put the Platy and Molly in my tank, and left the fry in my sisters tank. There was about 40 of them. That was a few months ago! 2 of them got big real quickly, so they are in my tank now (mother and father died along the way) Now there are about 8 of them left in my sister's tank, but they aren't growing too well. Hopefully they will survive.
