Pregnant Platy and Guppy in net breeder

I just bought a net breeder for one of my guppies which seems to be pretty pregnant,
however I also JUST noticed that my red wag platy is also very pregnant maybe even more than the guppy.

As of now they are both in the net breeder is this a good idea?

Turns out that the guppy got out somehow (jumped?) so I guess this wasn't a good idea

What do I do?? I have 3 pregnant guppies and a pregnant platy

1 in a net breeder is bad enough just wait till u see the most squared one and watch it carefully and if u find fry keep a close eye on em and find the one that is giving birth and put the babies in the net..the net will stress all of them

I agree. It might be exciting to be able to save a whole bunch of babies but in the end, the females will live much healthier and longer lives, and have more and healthier babies, as well as they won't have as many issues with pregnancies if you don't bother them every month when they are pregnant.
