Unhappy I noticed fries in my tank but have a problem!

So i wake up today, about to perform a water change in my currently cycling 21 gallon and i noticed 3 (there might even be more) red comet platies fries. Some of them were swimming and some were hiding in the gravel. Cool yeah but the problem is I have only 1 tank which is cycling so the water is toxic and baby fish should be sensible. I can't put them in another container as I don't have another filter.
Do you think they can make it or will they die because of the cycle?

You can get a big container with water from the fries tank.Catch the fries and put them in the container.You don't need a filter for now.They can survive.
If you are afraid of them suffocating you could add some live plants in the container.

Good Morning Whiskey, things have been busy in your tank I see :) I just sent you a PM with a few suggestions. Did you mix a little Whiskey in that last water change? Looks like there's been a party going on :) Talk with you soon my friend
