I don't know about the life after fry but I do know they have a shorter lifespan due to their spinal deformity enduced by genetics.

Sorry everyone. I'm gone. I can't use the forum anymore. My health issues are too much. I'll miss you all and I will return some day, just not on this account.

some liverbearer females (guppies, platys, mollies, endlers) will die after birth due to the stress of giving birth...........I have not heard of anything you can do for them either..............Just a part of the cruelity of nature, i guess

after they give birth, you can try taking them out of the tank so that they aren't harassed by the males, that seems to help. Just give her a day or two alone. I have also found that if they live after the first drop they are much more likely to survive subsequent times.
