If the fry are too small to net, you can use a piece of clear tubing and siphon them into a container to put them into another tank. I'd use a 1/2" id tubeing which you can adjust the water flow with your finger over the end going into the container. You don't want to siphon too fast or you can hurt the fry but you don't want too slow a flow or the fry will swim away from the tube.
Hope this helps
