You can raise them in a breeder net or a container with air until they are large enough not to become a snack. Hint: Use baby brine shrimp and they will grow really fast.

Congratulations! I agree with using either a breeding net or breeding basket. Baby brine shrimp I heard is a great food for babies although feeding them high quality flakes like new life spectrum are good also.

If they did it once, I'm sure they'll do it again. So buying a breeder basket or net will come in handy in the future!

Thing is as well, you have survivors. By all means get the breeder net if you want to save lots more, but you'll still have babies growing up in your tank even if you leave them in the main tank.
