Yeah, I saw the crushed up flakes thing. Is that all they need for food?

Any special water requirements for fry? Harder, softer? Warmer cooler? Ph? What size tank would you recommend?

tank recommendations would depend on whether or not your keeping them.

if you do plan on keeping them, it doesnt look like your even pushing 30fry, so just keep them in a 10g for a while, and once they reach about 0.75cm, reintroduce them to the community tank.

if you plan on selling them, i would recommend a 20g for that many, because most pet stores will not take them if they are under an inch long. (about 3-4months old in my experiences)

also, the water levels will be fine if you match them with your breeder's.
