The silver sailfin molly in my aquarium has given birth to 30 babies a couple of days back. I have placed all of them in a small 3-litre DIY aquarium (NO filter, airpump). Feeding them tubifex worms and powdered pellets twice a day. Water changes - 20% everyday. Lots of maintenance work !!!

Pu them back in the tank and add bunches of plants to let them take their chance,
They will not thrive in a bowl and you really should consider rehoming the parents as your 45L tank is too small for mollies.

Your local pet store should have some fry plants. Look like small stands of thick grass. My fry would dive and hang out in those all day.
