Sunburst Platy fry.

I have three Platys, two males and 1 female which are in a 124 liter tank with two golden gouramis, four dwarf gouramis, 10 cardinal tetras, 1 algae eater, 1 rainbow shark, 2 ottosinclis, 8 fullygrown cherry barbs and 1 small one. During the night the female platy has given birth and i have seen 2 fry swimming around today. The tank has many plants and rocks in it, so it would be quite easy for them to hide, but is it likely for them to survive and what should i feed them? I have flake food and pellets.

The gouramis or the shark will get them eventually. on the off chance that they survive, they will do fine eating the scraps of everyone else's food. If you were going to take them out and put them in a grow out tank, you could pretty easily keep them fed on powdered flake with occasional daphnia or baby brine shimp.

I don't have any sort of grow tank, but the second time i saw one a dwarf gourami came really close to it and investigated slightly, but swam on. Is it more likely to be the golden gouramis or rainbow shark that get them?

hi
as long as there is some dense areas of plants
and rock formations,you will find that one or two
will survive.
