The fry looks to be a few days old, if i were to make a guess she had them all and that was the only survivor from the other fish eating them and when you did your water change the little fry got scared out of its hiding place, I wouldn't be suprised if a handful more show up but i wouldnt really count on it, that one is still small enough that one of the other molly's might notice and have a midnight snack when your not looking

That would make sense. Haven't you heard? We make yogurt, not sense.

TATTOO MOLLIES!!!!!!!!! Sorry, I am just not a big fan at all of the practice of dying fish. I think it is horrible and don't even know why people are allowed to sell them. But those are all my opinions, don't take it personal. Anyways, from the looks of it, that big molly is a female. I might be wrong though because I couldn't see it up close. Those black mollies probably mated and those are their babies, so congratulations! Just make sure they have places to hide and you might get some survivors! How big is that tank? Because I know that mollies have a fairly large bioload and that tank seems pretty small, especially if those babies start popping up more often.

They will usually have fry about once every month. Crushed up flake food (make it a powder) will do for their food. A 55 gallon long is fine, I think it just looked small to me in the vid. Feel free to ask any other questions!

I wouldn't go with a fry basket. Just provide some hiding places, or some sort of floating live plant. (Elodea works well.)
