good luck! you shoudl put them in a breeder trap/net and let them groa bit in there so moma or daddy dont decide to eat them i have few platies to survive either... so far since havng them arround 8 months, they have given me three successful fry...
my endlers however give me arround 10 a week since i got them a month ago...

A breeding trap is the way to go if you dont have one use a large net as a temporary measure. Also get some floating water sprite this will help next time yo get the fry it will give them some shelter from parents and other fish.

I do have many plants in the tank.. non floating of course though.. I am nervous about saving all of them in a net because non of our LFS/LPS will take them.. thanks so much

I agree with keith on this one, a breeder trap is a must if you want any fry to survive. I rescued the one fry I could and fattened him up then released him back with the group.
