you could use a tank divider. i couldnt get one so i spent $5 and bought one of those plastic 'nano' tanks. bad environment altogether but you can put fish in it and then submerge that in the main tank...new water and food can be directed through the vents in the lid, and once fry are born it is hard for them to escape
im currently doing this with a VERY pregnant Mosquitofish.

Thanks to me, my family lives in a zoo. Could the always increasing number of fish, 3 Snails, 9 Shrimp, 3 Caudates, Dog, Cat, and 2 Birds POSSIBLY have ANYTHING to do with it?

Very best thing to do is just buy a bunch of plants and make sure your water paramaters are good,and temp is at 78 and all the fry should hide inbetween the plants and gravel!

Hiding spots is the most important thing for the fry!
