I have 30 Molly fry in a breeder net on top on top of my forty eight litre.
Currently in my big tank are two Molly's, three Harliquens and three neons
They have been in there for a week and I want to release them.
I want to keep as many as possible and if they did go in would they be fed the baby food or the adult and how much?

They seem far too small. I'd keep them in there another two to three weeks.

I would say if you had more plants (you could get floating plants like guppy grass) just release them into the tank. I know you want to save all of them, and if you have a solid plan for them that's ok, but if you don't let nature take its course with some of them. Only the strongest fastest and smartest fry will keep from being eaten and you won't have an over run tank. I do this with my guppies and it makes things much more manageable if you don't have more tanks or resources to take care of them. In my opinion it leaves you with the healthiest stock as well.

It might if you have an LFS that you know wants to buy the fry later on.
