Took a few pics but it's that small! She's still quite big but the dark bits aren't so dark anymore, so wonder wether she's had more and there hiding in the tank somewhere

If you have a bunch of decor then yes, they very well could be hiding

I've got quite a few places to hide in there! Is it right that a month later she will have more?

Uhhhhhh yes! Definitely more. And if this was her first batch then it should be fairly small. As she progresses then she will start having more. Just make sure she doesnt get stressed. She could abort the whole birth

Just going to keep my eyes peeled to see if I can spy anymore. I've made a note of the date so I no when to expect anymore. Do they grow quite fast?

No not too fast. They grow like a puppy

Take a fake or real plant and put it in there. It will give the little ones a place to hide

Get something with a small leafy stem or java moss is way better. The fish will eat small things off of it. I keep my fry like that feeding them flakes every 2-3 days

It should work. Just lay it flat on the top so they have cover. They like to hide at the top of the water

Use a set of algae magnets. Secures the trap better. I assume you have the intake covered??......

I've only found 3, 2 I managed to catch but the other I saw it once and then it was gone, haven't seen it since. I've made a note of when these where born so I should be able to save more next time round
