Has anyone on here tried breeding mollies for feeders? I have an extra 20 gallon tank sitting around doing nothing, and am in some need of feeder fish for sure, so I'm looking for any advice someone could give on how many mollies I can put in to breed as feeders. Thanks a lot!

You will also need another considerably larger tank to do this. IME Unless you are feeding the fry while tiny.. The new generations will overrun such a small tank before the previous generations are big enough to be of interest [If feeding size-able fish].
I started breeding with 1M/5F for feeders for my Oscars in a heavily planted 20 but I quickly swapped them into a 29 as 2M/7F which was still far too small of a tank to grow out such prolific breeders [IME], I used a 55 for that.
Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.
