I believe that I have read, that female platy can still have fry for a couple months after being separated from males.

Its possible they will have more babies, but I think the platy and gourami will eat them, not the cory.

If you are not looking to have more, I would let the other fish eat them.

hi
just thought i would chime in,the breeder nets are easy to buy from any shop
her in the UK,where abouts are you ?
personally i would leave the babies to be eaten,because unless you intend to set up another tank
to grow them on before perhaps selling them or giving them back to the shop,
you will be over run with them.

hi
pets @ home should stock them for you.
you could always order on line if they don't carry what you want.
