Depends. What fish are in the community tank, how big are they now, and how big is the tank?

I have a "sucker" fish (the ple-something, sorry can't spell it), 2 rasbora and a Raphael catfish. And they are maybe the size of punky nail and smaller. Some are bigger than the others

"Plecostomus", aka pleco. How big is this tank??? Also, do you happen to know what kind of pleco this is?

I've been meeting to get a few more rasbora but the mollies are too big for a 10 gallon? Well I can get a bigger tank later I just need to know how long to I keep the fry away from the rasbora pretty much b/c my pleko and catfish hid all the time. They are about a month and a half old.

the mollys can reach like 5 inches and need a 30 gallon tank. depending on the species of pleco it could reach 2 feet and need a 120. the raphael needs like a 55
