What to do with babies

I bought 4 mollies (2 males and 2 females) and converted them over to salt water. They are doing fine but when I went to clean out the qt tank there's babies. Do I put them in the main tank to fend for themselves (have 6 line wrasse that I'm sure would love them)? Do I put them in the sump to fend for themselves? Your does someone have another suggestion. Can't keep them in qt.

Really depends on rather you want to keep them or not. You could try to trade them in at your lfs.

You could keep them for a while, fatten them up, and then give them to the wrasse as a treat...

I would put them in the sump as additional clean up critters.

I agree with the sump. They will be OK there
