It's up to you. What kind of plant? Get something yucky tasting like a java fern or anubia.

Hm I'm not very good at telling but maybe 10 more days? My platy gave birth when I thought she had a couple more day left. My swam up and down so I knew she was giving birth. Breeders trap might help. Read the first page of thread. Maybe more days though so far mine had 45 fry and more batches another batch this week!

Try feeding the fry crushed flakes. Or you can buy specific fry food at your lfs. Just make sure it isn't the one that promotes vigorous growth. In my opinion that's unhealthy for them.

I feed my crushed flakes. You can feed them a lot like egg yolk from boiled egg ( have to smash it up too ) . Lfs has fry food sometimes.
