  1. Default Question About Fry...

    0 Not allowed!
    I am new here and looking for some advice, i was not sure where to post so choose here i hope that is alright and if not i hope that someone can point me in the right direction. Anyway here is my question. I have had freshwater tanks on and off most of my life, well me and my husband decided to take up the hobby again, i have done well with a 55 gallon tank only have had a few issues in the last two years. so i think i am doing pretty good, Well i had a friend offer me a few more Dalmatian Molly's, i accepted. well i was not expecting fry, but i got what i did and am not complaining, just have never done this part before, my fish have had babies but always in the tank with no issues but only my guppies seem to breed which is fine with me, and helps stock my friends tanks as well. :) I do have a breeder tank which is what they are in as of now, i am just worried about putting them in the big tank until they are bigger. I would like some advice on what to do. Thanks.

    Live bearer fry are really easy. They come out mostly fully developed and just need ground flake food or products like liquifry to do well. Also some plants to produce some stuff to forrage. If you want to keep the all, a seperate tank with some moss or plants from your main tank and small 3x daily feeds will grow them out nicely.

    Personally, I have a 55g planted tank. And I occasionally have some platy fry survive, if they do great, if not then its nature. You can provide a second fry tank, but it ends up as more work. Depends what you want to do, and the room you have
