    Well what I did is (for my guppies if they help) is I wait for when it looks like my guppy is about to drop and then I move her in a 2.5g tank by herself (though you probably want more). Since it generally happens overnight for me, I go to sleep and I also keep my net and a cup of water next to her container. When I wake up, first thing I go there and net her into the other bowl and than transfer her back to my main tank (55g) and than the fry is by itself.

    Generally a few eggs or if you have live bearers fish may be eaten but generally a good majority will survive.

    I'm sure this may or may not work for you but I don't have the most experience so I recommend waiting for someone else to reply:). I hope this helped. Best of luck with your baby tiger barbs, I've seen some baby tiger barbs and they look really cool!

    Oh, ps... I love the puppy in your avatar.

    One thing you could do, if you don't eat to move any fish out, is add a whole bunch of plants to your tank. Make it really thick in spots so the fry can hide in it. This doesn't garentee the fry surviving but a few might.
