I don't know if you have a petsmart close to you... But I bought some fake plant squares... haha I don't know what it's called, but they were by the plastic plants. They are about 8inches by 8 inches, and about 3 inches tall. It's thick for the adults (They can't just dart through it), but it's a great place for the babies to fall through, and hang out under.
You'll definitely notice when one of your girls becomes really thin one day (Hopefully you'll even catch her having the fry!). When she is thin again... those babies have been dropped, and more than likely, it'll take a search to even see any of them. Do you have gravel? Or sand? Gravel is good cause it gives them a place to hide for a couple days. YES, they are THAT small! Just hiding down in the gravel... it's so crazy.
Anyhow, those plastic plant squares, I think are a pretty good way to ensure that you'll have a few survivors.
Can't wait to hear!
