Livebearers are the easiest to care for. The problem is (as stated above) spotting the female before she gives birth and separating her from others to reduce the chances of fry being eaten. If seen from above, her belly usually looks more round than oval (not always). From below, her anal should be much wider than usual.

You can feed fry any small food (natural or crushed). I usually use live tubefix to power grow them until they begin to show their fins and color. Then I use small pellets. And I prefer to use a tank that has algae (don't know the name or type - definitely not hair/thread algae) on the floor and sides so they can snack on them between feedings.

Good Luck.

IME they are not picky on food. Unlike bettas, they will literally eat anything. When I'm out of fish food, I would simply toss in a small piece of bread. Just make sure that you do wc accordingly.
