WAYY too many fry!

So I had moved my adult glofish to a ten gallon the other day because i noticed fry in tank and they were being eaten, then i ended up with over 50 fry in my 5 gallon. I then switched the fry to the ten gallon and put adult glofish back in 5 gallon. I realize now that the glofish have done bred in the 10 gallon because there are new fry coming out of the rocks. Now i have over 120 fry in there. What should i do?!?!?!

Keep and raise them. They're 10$ a pop over here.

I think you could. Do you have 2 10 gallons now, or just the one?

If you seed it with lots of media it'll be cycled fast enough to grow some out there. Once they hit 1-1 1/2 inches sell them for 4-5$ a pop.
