20+ Fish Babies
I have a ten gallon tank...inside it I have a dalmatian molly and a pink kissing gourami. I've already been told that a gourami is too big for a ten gallon. However, a couple months ago a baby sprang up out of the tank, and today all of the sudden there is 20+ babies in there. I don't know what to do because the tank is too small for all those fish. Should I bring them to a store? I'm not sure what to do.

A fish store will not accept just born baby fish. They may after they are grown out.
Some will die off and some will likely be eaten by their tank mates.
You could attempt to find someone willing to take them from you locally on craigslist, but do not be surprised if some of the interested may be wanting them for feeders.

I would bring the gourami back to the store. They get to be a foot long. Some of the fry will get eaten by the adult fish. You could always try to sell some as feeders to people with big fish.Lots of tanks. Some tanks are planted. Fish include community and bettas.

RIP Princess and Max the Dachshunds, Tiger and Ping Pong the rabbits, and all the fishes from when I was a newbie.

If you are anywhere near me I'd be willing to give them a home.

Yes maybe I should bring it back. What fish would be better for a ten gallon tank? I live in Chicago.
