Well, I have yet to raise a batch of livebearer fry. I may set up a breeding tank in the future, but for now I have added plastic floating plants in the community tank to provide cover for the next fry release. I am hoping that a few of the platy fry will get big enough to evade my juvenile angels, the danios and the other platies by hiding in the floating cover. My LFS
has a platy tank with four fry hiding in these plants, so it might work.
