New Baby! Need some advice!

Hi all!


So I found a baby last night in the community tank. She's very small, and I can't tell if she's a platy or a molly baby... She's kind of a brown color and very, very tiny. I was expecting more, but if there are others I can't see them.


But, I'm not sure how to take care of her. She stays on the bottom; should I just feed extra so she can scavenge, or should I feed her something special? I don't have anywhere to put her, or I'd take her out of the tank - will she survive if I leave her in?

Thanks guys :)

After googling for pics, I think she is a baby platy.

Try to separate her in a bredder/net or something~ Or provide more hiding places so it doesn't get eaten.

Crushed up flakes work perfectly~ And they do sit still for the first few days. Once they realize they're safe they tend to wander a bit
