I think moving the pregnant platy to a new birthing tank, (once properly cycled of course) and then planting it would be agood idea. this gives the fry places to hide, especially if you dont get the momma out right after the fry come. I have bred platys before, and its hard to know what to with them. some of my mommas eat their fry immediatly after birth, and some i can leave the fry in with them and they do just fine, no eating my the rents or anything. However if the fry have been eaten in the past by the same momma, i would move her, let her give birth, then move her back, and give the fry time to grow big enough to get away when targeted.
