    Swordtails dont spawn since they are livebearers. If you have already separated the female its ok to remove her after she has all the young. It is not uncommon for them to eat their young

    Are you looking to raise all the fry? Swords can have quite a few young so you better make sure you have a home for them all, if you are not so fussed then allow her to give birth in the main tank and allow the circle of life and survival of the fittest to take place.
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    Unless you need loads of swordtails for some reason I would just let them take their chances in the main tank. I gave mine away in the end because I had literally dozens of them in no time at all.
