Ok, i thought one of my platys was pregnant about a week ago and put her in a breeding net box. She was in there for a few days and I wasnt convinced she was pregnant and took her out. So its a week later and I looked inside my tank today and there were little fry all over the place. I put them all in the breeder net box. There is about ten of them.
Any advice on how to keep them healthy would be much appreciated. Ive been crushing up flake food, which I read on the internet. I also read about something called Infusoria or something. Take bruised vegetable and let it sit in water for a few days? Then take the top layer out which is microscopic organisms or something.
Also, ive read on this forum about the mother dying within days of the birth. Is this common. Is there anything I should be worried about. I do see one of the female Platy
's hanging out at the rim of the breeder box. As i look over now she's just been swimming up there for like the whole day.
