Hi all. So, a platy fry is stuck and he has been there all day. Sky can't push him out. I think he already died but, what can I do?

If you can scoop her out, you can apply very gentle pressure to her belly, but it carries  significant risk of injury to her and to any other fry she still has inside her.  If you are to the point where it’s a choice between risking her dying from a stuck fry vs dying from damage, then it’s a choice you’ll have to make.  If you try to grip the fry and pull (if you even can) it may come apart if it’s dead and then you’ll still be stuck with having to try to express the rest of the baby out.
