It might be a good idea. When i had a dragonfly nymph, i noticed the numbers dropping but thought they were hiding, till i woke up and saw NONE, then saw the skin of a dragon fly nymph laying on the floor, found a nymph after that and removed. I searched it as best i could and the next day 0 fry again, once i spent the day carefully removing the fry i then tore that tank apart and found 4 more hiding. SO GROSS. Why do these bugs have to sneak into our artificial natural attempted breeding tanks =[ I hate them >.< Least once i got them out one by one, all day i ended up with 9 fry, i liked the number 40 better but ah well :) If it helps any, dragon fly nymphs would hide in the floating plants and on the non floating plants and their colors could camouflage them really well. Not sure if what you got is the same, i hope they are all gone though :)

Jiro, I would take those plants out and rinse them and then do your headcount. Better to know for sure than wonder all the time.

if they get any older and you are planning to sell them can i have just one or two ? the parents are sooooo beautiful i couldnt help saying that i would mostly want a female though if you could tell there genders when there older please keep me in mind i always wanted to buy a fry from a breeder (you sound like someone i could trust [dumb ebay] ;]) also i really don't want to spend like 50 dollars on one fry if your selling them under 40-50 dollars i would be happy to =] ( got to tell my parents first X]]) i would like to get a female like jiro's color but it really dosen't matter to me as much

sorry that is a little later talk about your fries (couldnt help it) i know for sure you are going to have gorgeous babies ( the parents are so pretty thats why) am astonished you really found a color like jiro's at a petstore?? wow am amazed 0-0

I want a fry AND I want to find a home for my platy fry. Although Jiro already knows that I have no room, no matter how much I wish I did. But maybe the next time, I'll have room.

It was my Hi-Fin platy who dropped but who knows what the father looked like. She's orange with a tan body and has the mickey mouse thing on her tail.
