I find fry tanks better with little decor better. If this is for Juvies then you need allot more rock work but for a fry tank less decor makes it easier to maintain. If it is like my fry tank I have 100 Fire mouths fry in a 20 long. So I had to do water changes more frequently and as they grew I had to remove some so its easier to net them will less decor. I now have about 15 with more decor added. I will continue to remove as they grow.

So IMO I think you are good. Adding some big leaf plants that you can easily move and you are all set.

My only concern honestly would be size vs amount of fry. If you're raising a large amount for grow-out, water conditions and size of the tank come into play.

I mean sure, I have plants, rocks and wood for my grow outs, but I use tubs instead of tanks and I split my fry between them so there's no over-crowding.

I think its great! I had no sand or gravel in my nursery tank, and very little decor. Easy to see them and easy to feed! Of course sooner or later they have to be rehomed or moved but thats a great tank to start them out in!

Very nice one little plant would work till there big enough to be moved. Looks great. I'm going to set up a fry tank as well. Water changes will be harder and more cuz they have so many. But looks good!
