How long should my Molly fry stay in my breeder net? I have one silver Molly female (not the mom, she passed sadly) and a male Dalmatian molly.The fry are about 1 week old. Thanks for your help

They need to stay in the net until they are too large for tankmates to eat. As an alternative, you can float a large raft of bushy plants like hornwort. The hornwort will provide a refuge, microorganisms for the fry to eat, and improved water quality.

Basically all you need to do is keep them in the breeding net for about 4 weeks or until they have grown about double in size
