Baby fry question
 
I have 3 baby fry 1 I know is a platy like the mother and the other 2 are think a cross between platy/molly. All of my mollies died due to ICH I believe..my question being can I just put my babies in a fish bowl for now until they are able to join the group?? I put them in there when I did a water change and they loved it only thing is no filter or heater..what do we think???

Mollies need a filter and a heater to be healthy and happy. If they are too small and you fear that they might be eaten, put them in a net breeder, but be sure they have the filter and heater.

you might be able to get by without the filter if you change the water often, but you will definitely have to keep the temp. stable. If your tank is big enough to do water changes to the bowl, it might work.
