If you want a lot of the fry to survive I'd say get a 2-5 gal tank heater sponge filter and gravel and have a nursery tank or if u just want some to survive leaving them in the main tank there should be a few that survive

I left mine in the tank. I have 9 survivors from the first batch, at least 3 from the 2nd batch, at least 2 from the third batch, and I think we're due babies tonight. They are quick and difficult to spot. I probably have more survivors but as they are masters of hiding I haven't seen more than that out at the same time. If you only want to keep two, definitely leave tem in there. Maybe just move some of your plants together a bit closer to provide more cover.

Oh congrats! You should post pics on my fry lovers thread... what color variations?

And also.. it takes a while to tell the difference between sexes, you could always get a breeder box or net or make one yourself. Or if ur goin all natural looks like you have plenty of hiding but you will need some loose plants for if they come up to et
