Im getting a 2.5 or 5 gallon tank to house my baby mollies and platy when she has them. I was wondering if i could put anything else in the tank that wont eat the fry?

In a tank that size I would only add some shrimp - they can help clean the leftover food the babies don't eat :19:

Cool! Thats what I wanted but didnt know if they would hurt the lil babies?

What about a betta?

a betta would for sure eat the fry, some ghost or cherry shrimp would be awesome

I would recommend mystery snails over ramshorn snails, unless of course you want a whole lot of snails.

Mystery snails have to have a male and female to breed. Ramshorn do not. They just boz around eating and laying eggs everywhere. Next thing you know, you got thousands.
