Fry help!!

My molly had fry about a week ago and just over the last few days I have noticed 5 dead. Is it normal to loose this many in a short period of time? I change some of the water everyday and they seem pretty healthy but now I don't know. Please help!!!

They aren't in a breeder net. They are in a pretty small tank by themselves. I feed them twice a day

No I never had a chance to cycle it because I didn't know they were going to be born and I wanted to save them

I would do water changes everyday. They are in what looks like a large jar or vase (from one of your other threads). No heater, no filter. They may have died from ammonia poisoning. They might be better off in a breeder net in the main tank.

They have a heater but no filter and I do clean most of the water everyday. I bought a 10 gallon today for my adult fish that is cycling right now. When I move my adults to that one my tank that I have had set up for a few month will become the nursery tank

Can you move the filter from the 3 gallon to the 10 gallon? It would certainly help get the cycle started.

Of I did that my 3 gallon would have no filter. While I was changing the water just a bit ago I did that but I had to put it back. Since I have no ammonia I have been putting food in the water and letting it stay there

Fry help!!

Just so we are clear, the 3g has the adult mollies and a filter, the 10g has no fish and no filter, and the container has the fry and a heater...correct?
If this is the case, it is pointless adding flakes to the 10g. Even if a filter was in there it will still a month to establish the BB in the 10g.
I would move the adult mollies and filter from the 3g to the 10g and move the fry from the container to the 3g.
I commented the same thing on your other thread: New tank. Not sure what to do

David, after reviewing this a few times, that's what I come up with as well.

However, a 10g tank is still way too small for mollies IMO. LA lists them for a 30g min.

Tree - I know. Just trying to triage the situation. Hard to follow multiple threads of essentially the same topic with bits and piece of info spread out.
