you can set up a new tank and put them there right away providing you do water changes. feed them finely crushed flakes, egg yolk, or wal-mart has little tubes of fry food for a few bucks.

congrats, any idea what kind of fry they are?

well there either red wag platies or dalmation mollies. i think there dalmation mollies. that would explain y she was just sittin at the bottom this morning. im going to get a little breeder tank later on and put them in a container for the time being

yea im so happy! hmmmm im gonna need a bigger tank lol. me and my dad are fishin them out now and my mom is picking up a new little tank on her way home. once they get bigger i'll start to move to the 6 gallon that should be established by then and then hopefully i'll have a new 20 gallon before there to big for that.
