Get a net breeder, ther ones with the mesh netting type stuff. They are larger and give her room to move aorund and not feel so confined. Also, throw in some Anacharis/elodea so she has some privacy and the fry have something to hide in. Some java moss might work also.

Either that or let us know what your lighting is and maybe just put a bunch of live plants in the tank so the fittest fry will survive on their own.
