You have two options, you can add a divider to the tank and segregate your females shortly before they give birth, or you can get a breeder box. Nevermind, you have three options, you could also set up a fry tank for them to give birth in. I ended up disliking the two kinds of breeder box I tried. I went with the dividers and that proved to be least stressful. They give birth over a few hours period. Unless they're my fish, in which case, they squirt out one then wait two days to have the rest.
That's all largely up to you and what you're willing to do. A lot of people just let nature take it's course. As long as you have lots of plants and a rock substrate a few will survive. Usually the survivors prove to be quite healthy.
I'd love some pictures.
