You should have a 20 gallon tank for adults and a 2.5-10 gallon tank for fry
20 gals=80l
2.5 gals=10l
3 gals=12l
5 gals=20l
5.5 gals=22l
6 gals=24l
7 gals=28l
7.5 gals=30l
8 gals=32l
10 gals=40l

My first ever drop from one of my females was 36 fry. There is no real way to tell how many they will have

It all depends though, like brox said it could be a little drop like 8 or so. You never know till she drops

Ahh the breeders box too , the fry may try to fit through the crack and make it but some are scared by the fish below them and go up through the grate and then get eaten, or they may try to swim up and get trapped and then eaten. I know because i use a breeders box, and still. Lose fry

My tricky little balloon Mollies do that with my guppy fry, they suck them through the little cracks in the bottom of the box but they get stuck in the crack at the head and it ends up decapitating them, not fun to see
