If you place some type of floating plants either real, or artificial on the surface of the water,the fry will immediately make their way to this to hide in. Then with a cup you can place the cup near the fish and they will be drawn into it while water is being pulled into the cup. have found that this is best done in the early morning's before lights go on if you can see without them.can still catch em with lights on but is easier with lights off. Hornwort
is a good live plant for babies to hide in and they also eat tiny organisims that also hide their.Maybe keep some in another tank, or breeder tank when females look about ready to drop fry.
