when i first found the fry in my tank i took a small tupperware container and put some of the aquarium water in it with an airator untill i could get to the store to get a breeders net....which was within 24 hours....also they really need a heater but my house temp is around 80 so my aquarium stays between 80 and 81 without the use of a heater....if for some reason you cant get a breeders net before she drops the fry then that may be your only chance at saving any. But remember that it is not optimal conditions and you may loose several or all of the fry if you dont get the proper set up ASAP. i dont know how many fry livebearers usually have...i only found one fry so the single breeders net to doing just fine. but if they have 40-50 babies you may need a few 10 gal set ups

if they have 40 -50 babies i know i will know they will not all survive so maybe 10-20 will survive.even if 20-30 were to survive i think i will have to only save 5-10 because i will not be able to care for them when they grow up. i know that sounds horrible but we have to do what we have to do right.that sounds cruel but i know my moms bf will not let me keep 20-30 or 40-50!!! not in a million years!!but anyway they can survive on REALLY REALLY crushed flakes that i feed the parents right?

i dont know when my mollie dropped her fry...i just went to do my nightly feeding and there he was hanging out by the filter.....from what ive read in other posts they can give birth at anytime. it seems to me that they usually do it when they arent being disturbed

im tellin ya man get a breeders net and just keep her in that untill she drops the fry....check out this website it has all different sorts of breeding aquariums Fish Breeders and Fish Hatcheries. if you want to ensure you save the fry your best bet is to heavily plant your tank with good plants for the babies to hide incase she does drop while youre not there then you can try to catch the fry and move them to the breeders net or other tank
