Hi, I have platys fry in a hatchery (attached to inside wall of main tank). Age of fry is 3 weeks approx. At the moment the hatchery is bare. Do I need to put some plants, gravel etc in there, e.g. in preparation for eventually releasing fry into the main tank?
Any advice welcome. Thanks

I agree, I normally put a small java fern or two or soem floating plants in just to give some cover and help calm them down. It will also help with any potential toxins and oxygenation in the hatchery.
