Baby Mollies everywhere!!!!

So I have an orange and white sail fin male and a regular finned yellow female molly. I thought it would bee cool to see what there off spring would be.

My plan was to rescue a few and put them in a separate tank and let the rest of the babies take a natural course (ie get eaten) so problem is nobody is eating the little ones and I have a bout 75 mollies aging from 3 months to 3 days.

75 gallon Tank stock
1 Opaline gourami 6"
4 German Blue Rams
2 Mollies
1 large pleco 8"
2 assasin snails
about 75 baby mollies

So what do I do with all these babies? LFS doesn't want them. Thinking of getting something a little more aggressive but I don't want to mess with my Rams. What are your thoughts suggestions?

PS If anyone is curious I did find the only about 15% took on the yellow or white color the rest were black marbled with yellow or white. There are no black mollies in the tank. I just find that kind of stuff interesting I'm a dork like that.

That is crazy that no one is eating them. I checked ahead and my LFS said he would take all of mine. Do you have any other LFS to check with?

no I moved to upstate NY and the fish scene here is really limited. There is a local chain that I hate dealing with, then petco and petsmart. I drive 45 min to get to a half way decent fish shop.

Do you know anyone who wants them? I have received more guppy babies from a girlfriend than I should probably have if they reproduce which I hope they do I will gladly share the wealth maybe others close to you will want some
