Well I went out today and bought a whole bunch of live plants, and some new fish. All of the 6 fry are still alive and doing great! I got 2 female swordtails for the tank and it appears that they both may be pregnant. They have the dark spot on their belly it looks like a bunch of black dots. After reading up on them they appear to be very similar to the mollies on being livebearers, except they tend to try to eat their fry.
My question is...I am about to let the 6 fry out of the breeder net (I have a 90 gallon community tank with some bigger fish in it) will the swordtails try to attack/eat them too, or only her own?
Thank you again everyone for the fast and informative replies, though I have had fish tanks on and off for many years this is the first time I have ever had fish breed in a tank, so I am really enjoying it and love seeing the little fry in there :D
