I'd say you have enough hiding spots.

Where's the heater though? He defiantly need a heater.

What do you have as far as food goes for the fry?

o my goodness im so unprepared i do not have the heater and i dont have any food to feed the fry. what should i feed the fry??

what is the best thing to feed the fry.. the season over where im at is spring but its just a little cold though. so im sorry i didnt know that i was so unprepared. and i think that the plats are very easy for the female to hide also the male cant get to her when she hides in the plants.. so i guess the plants are okay..

I suggest you do some more reading before you spawn your fish.

Read this:

Definately use those links. I feed baby brine shrimp from the moment they become free swimming up until I jar them. I recently started using First Bites for my four week old fry. You also need a corner filter with a gang valve and air pump. I sent you a link in the message about how I spawn.

Fry really do need a heater. The water temperature should be around 80-82 or so.
