well the fish store wont take them if they are too small. you might have to take care of them for a couple of weeks before they will take them (at least the LFS
in my city). but i went to wal mart and for $10 you can get a 1 gal
tank with a under gravel filter and a light and thats where i put my fry at. and you can remove the mother as soon as she has the babies she wont be bothered too much by it. shell be back to normal as soon as shes back to the general population ready to get preggo again lol, but you are on the right track tho and congrats!
