how to take care of platy fry in 1gal?

Hi there
my platy had her batch of fry last night in an 1G that we just got for nursery purposes. This morning when i found her eating some of them, transferred her back to the community tank (10 G) and kept the babies in the 1G. I removed the bridge, gravel and plastic plant i had for them to hide..
the 1G tank has an air pump but no filter. I've been feeding them powdered flakes.. i wonder how do i do to to increase their chances. I've been reading about several feedings a day and frequent water changes but I still like some advice.
thanks

hi, ideally u need a filter in the tak. they should be fed little but often, several times a day platys tend to grow rather quickly, aslong as they are provided with the right conditions.
