Molly Frustration...please reply

Alright so this morning I woke up and checked on my tank to low and behold find 1 stillborn and 1 developed fry still in its egg in the safety part of my floating breeder. Im not sure which of the 2 delivered them because both of them are still pretty plump...but only 2? im sure which ever it was still has more on the way? Ive read that the whole process can take a day or 2?

im so frustrated I really want my orange baloon to have her babies be ok since shes my only one :(

Any suggestions please help me out.

Thanks again

I would only suggest to use a planted tank as substitute for the breeder nets, etc. The reason why you had stillborn fry is that breeder things often stress the fish at an extent that they are forced to expel the fry prematurely.

Alright so I went and bought a jungle of aquarium plants and added them to my tank. My fish seem to enjoy them so now I just have to wait till I spot some little fry swimming amongst the plants. Do you suggest I just leave them to grow up in the tank or seperate them just in case? Any thoughts please let me know. thanks again!

feed the parents well (dont over-feed, just feed well) and leave the fry there, the parents should ignore them if they are fed well
