where did they go?

Hi guys. i havent used this forum for quite a while but have a mystery that needs solving. i have some 4 week old platy fry in a floating trap. i started with 20.......3 days ago down to 7 and today theres only 5!! wat on earth has happened to them, theres no dead ones. they are all healthy. i am not new to this and it has never happened before. i wonder if the fish are sucking them through the holes??hmmmmmm.....
grateful for any insight, would like not to lose the last of them.....

Alex

i wouldnt say so, there is a couple cm gap out of the water....there is definately no chance these guys would survive in the wild of my tank....i have noticed the other fish sucking around it tho.
