taking them out and keeping them in another container is the best or you could try floating a plastic piece of stubby plants for them to hide in.make sure the adults can't make it into the parts where the babies hide

With nine females, which were possibly exposed to males, enough fry will survive and many more likely to come without any intervention from you.
Some floating artificial plant's can work as well as real ones, until you can purchase more live ones.
Nine females can quickly produce numer's of f ry that will soon require more tanks, or larger tank.
Is what they do.
