Bio, if you are worried about her eating them while she is in the net, and if you don't have some moss to put in the net with her, just put a wad of yarn in there. That also can work. The fry can hide in yarn. They don't usually eat their young while giving birth, because they are usually too busy giving birth to care, but just to be on the safe side, put some yarn or moss in there.
Also, the net should be fine if you want the fry to stay in it lol. If the net has big holes, it won't work...
Do you have a recent picture of her? It would really help. Are you positive she is pregnant? It is normal for fish to go over their normal amount of pregnancy.

Hmm. 4"X2" is a bit small. The net I used is a 5"X4", and has very fine holes, so the fry couldn't escape. I guess you could try a 4X2 net, but if she stresses too much, take her out and find something different.
Your female is smaller than that female in the picture, or bigger?

Yes, they are probably babies. If she is acting strange, she is likely going to give birth soon. My female guppy gave birth. The one I mentioned earlier. She gave birth when I went to town, and I came back and there were a bunch of fry, and she wasn't finished. If you leave her alone for a while, she will probably give birth. Do you have her separate from the others?

No, no, not into a bowl. I wouldn't move her now, especially because she's so close to birthing. Just leave her be now. I have loose fry with my guppies and bettas and they don't eat them, so perhaps some might survive...
