    i use a sponge filter for my fry tank. It is not necessary to decorate it with plants etc as such if only the fry are there. Plants etc are there for them to hide in if they have adults in the tank with them so that they have a place to hide and not get eaten. It is a good idea to keep the tank cycling as live bearers are quite prolific breader. If no fry are in the tank, I'd advise that you keep a few of you adults in there untill it's time for your new batch of babies..

    congrats on the fishy prodgeny

    Marie,
    Fry tanks are usually bare bottom, that is, no gravel, as fry tanks must be kept scrupulously clean, and a bare-bottomed tank is easier to see and remove debris before they impinge on water quality and kill fry.
    An under gravel filter is an inert piece of plastic, thus is incapable of harboring the concentration of nitrifying bacteria of a seasoned sponge filter. Also, as said above, fry are able to pick micro-crustaceans from the surface of a sponge filter as a supplementary food source.
