    They can hide pretty well, so long as you have a heavily planted tank w/ plenty of hiding places. They will get eaten by bigger fish, though, so prepare yourself for that. If you want to keep the fry and you have them in a community tank, your best bet is to remove them from the tank and throw them in a breeding tank w/ a sponge filter. Their survival rate will drop considerably if they're left in the current tank. I've found that fry will eat a lot of the micro-organisms that grow on aquatic plants, etc. Once they're a bit bigger, you can just feed crumbled flakes that are higher in protein.

    A lot more survived than I originally thought. Guess this is my que to set up that 10 gal heavily planted tank I've been dying to set up. I have a feeling this thread will end up as a journal. Going to the store tomorrow to pick up a tank, hood, some new plants, and so on and so forth. This ought to be fun.

    FYI, I was in a petsmart yesterday and noticed that they have 10 gallon tanks on sale right now for $12.

    Luckily for me, I have a petsmart next to a great LFS. I'll check em out.
    Also, should I remove the fry immediately? I planned on putting them in a breeder cage in a 10 gal until they were big enough to hold their own outside of it. And are rcs compatible with fry?

    Aaand what should I get for substrate? I was going to bite the bullet and get TMS, even though I know there are alternatives I only need one bag

    That'd be fine. A cheaper alternative would be Black Diamond Blasting Sand. Love that stuff. Looks great. Get some bushy stem plants, like Cabomba, Hornwort, Water Sprite, etc. That stuff provides a lot of cover for them. They also like free floating mosses. Though ugly, it provides them with a very good hideout and collects detritus/etc for them to eat. I'm excited for you. =] Have fun putting this together.

    I planned on putting the blasting sand in my 36, but before I could leave to but it I found the fry! I've got some crypts, java fern, and wisteria right now, we'll see what the store has to offer

    Anything will do. The wisteria's a good one. Something that will offer a lot of hiding places for the fry. Crypts are a bit too open. Java ferns are pretty good, too.

    I planned on planting the tank real heavy, so the crypts will be kind of the "open" area
