Baby unsexed Kribensis in NYC

On February 18th, my kribensis eggs hatched and I had about 100 fries. Because I only have a 55g tank I can not hold more. What's worse is that the parents seem like they are about to breed again.

These babies are healthy, and have been fed hikari first bits, baby brine shrimps, and egg yolks as babies.
Now I feed them NLS spectrum grow, hikari frozen bloodworms and frozen brine shrimps.

Price is 1 for $2 and every 10 you get 1 extra. They should be ready to be sexed in about 2 months or so.

Pick up only in NYC since they're too young to be shipped.

The picture is of the parents and the babies.

I still have about 35 left. I am probably going to increase price over time as it costs me to hold on to them (extra maintenance and food).

They're about an inch now. Here's a picture.

I won't deliver to long island but I could meet you at grand central.

How much would it cost if they were old enough to be sexed and can you sex them? When they are bigger would you ship them?

It varies butI would estimate about $4-$5 after they are sexable. It would also depend which gender I have more of. I could definitely sex them in about a month of two.

Which state do you live in? With shipping I am not sure if it is worth it if you buy so little.
