I don't have any really good advice for molly babies but I wish you luck :) I have a planted betta/platy tank and I just let the fry go 'survival of the fittest'. In the last batch three of the platy babies survived to safe sizes where they hang out with the group now and aren't chased as food.

Xochipilli - Butterfly HM Male
Ginko - White/Black Marble Delta Female :D
Agathon - White/Blue Marble SD Male

- Rice Paddy In The Sky -
Commie - Red VT Male
Blackout - Black Rosetail Male

So update: Right now they are about 20 days old and they have gotten quite big. I will try to raise them to about 3-6 months then adopt them off or give them to a lfs for credit or something. I do have one question do any of you know at what age I should separate them as I would like to prevent any inbreeding :/.

The bad thing is that if you give them to an lfs... Who knows what will happen to them?

They would probably make good starter fish for someone just getting into the hobbby.
