I have a female mollie haveing her fry and eating them as fast as they come out. How or what can i do to stop this? Could i put some water in a bowl and put the fry in it till morning to get a breeder net?

Floating plants will allow the fry to hide.

As byron said, floating plants and/or fry tank are your only two options to save them. if you think your female is pregnant, try getting her seperated so she can give birth. however, if you stress her out, she will abort. good luck!
