Need some quick advice, corydoras fry.

The fry is a few days old. Not quite free swimming but soon. They are in a breeder net inside my 75g, this is where they hatched.

This morning I used a small air line tube to try and vacuum some of the debris from the small net. Its works but I also sucked up some.fry. they all lived and get them back in the net. Because there is a lot and there is a lot of crevasses and such with this style of breeder net I am worried about poop and stuff building up in areas I can't clean due to all the fry tucking away in those areas.

So my question is, should I move them to a 10g? Too soon to try and move them?

I have a aquaclear 20 that I can fill with media from my 75g canister and plants from the 75g.

I got sand too I can put a bit on the bottom.

I think I could keep the 10g cleaner by doing partial water changes and the sand.

Thoughts? What should I do?

Leave em. Seems that constant parameters and clean water are the best for sensitive fry. So long as there's adequate flow I wouldn't think a few random lingering poos would be all that detrimental. Moving them would gauruntee atleast 20%loss imo.

The Brooks man is correct. You need the aged tank water and water circulation. A little excrement will not hurt them too much. I use a turkey baster to clean up the waste.

Here is some macro shots and video of what the fry look like. Should I start feeding at this point?

I've been told and read that you feed once they egg sack is absorbed which is like 3 days if I remember correctly.
