Ah, so once I fill my tank (just cycled, only want to stock a few fish at a time), the fry will be eaten? Seems a little cruel but I'm new to the fishkeeping hobby.
@redchigh, sorry, I thought you meant if I didn't have any hiding spots I wasn't fit to keep platy fry, sorry for the misunderstanding!
