First FRY!!!!!!!!!!

YAY!!!! The first fry! And I spotted it just swimming around the tank! I scooped it right up and put it in the breeder net and then I started watching my fish to see which was was having the babies. Of course, as soon as I start watching, the birthing stops! Anyways, I noticed that my black molly was acting weirder and less "feisty" than the other fish so I scooped her up and put her in the net also. I didn't want to have to do this, but I had no choice. My other female mollies and other fish are harassing her, chasing her around, nipping at her fins and stomach. She seemed very distressed.
So I put her in the breeder net with the one fry and all seems well. She's relaxing comfortably and doesn't seem to be bothered at all by the fact that she's in there. I think she's happy to have a break from the other fish.

I'm glad she's doing well in the breeder net. She's probably relieved that she's not being harrassed anymore. Good luck with your fry.

update....I let the mom out of the net, and about 3 min later she died. Also both babies she had died. So I'm super stinking discouraged right now. I tested the ammonia levels because some of the fish seem like their gasping for air, and it was slightly high, so I did a partial water change and added ammonia remover, so well see what happens. It just seems like it's all going wrong all of a sudden and I've had this tank for about a year. I just don't get it.
