Question wow alot to ask about

so i came home and found a dozen molly fry in my girlfriends tank, and i pulled them out. i had no choice but to put them with my dempsey fry who are half there size. and for those of you who know me you know theres no filter in that tank. i dont think the the two different fry are going to hurt each other, but anyone got any advice. the fry are from a silver female molly and a creamcicle lyrtail male molly.

you may run into problems down the road, I had my convicts in with swordtail fry, both still almost clear in color at the time so freshly born.

at first the swordtails were bigger than the convicts so the convicts were picked on, however the convicts grew much faster and eventually picked on the swordtails and then themselves, so they had to be movied to a bigger tank

Just keep an eye on them...they should be fine

I also have 16 guppy fry and 20+ swords from a female pineapple, who dropped on 3/31 and started to show eggs again over a week ago. Only the sword fry are in the 10g now, the rest are in my 55 which number 70 fish now. From now on, I'm letting nature take it's course. Ugh

the jack dempsey are beautiful fish and they'll eat any fish they can beat up, jacks that werent that big ate a full grown blood red parrot. i sell jack dempseys and when the fry are ready i can sell you a couple at a cheap price. im going to cross bread them with some african cichlids, just going through the picking process.

I appreciate that, but thats not the route I was thinking of going, but out of curiousity roughly what would it cost to have fish shipped to Ontario Canada?
