Molly babies

My molly had babies about 4 days ago. I moved them to my 5 gal by themselves yesterday with a Discard-a-filter. I have been feeding them Hikari powdered baby food. Is this good for the babies? When do I give them live food, and what kind of live food? Also would a petstore buy them from me, I don't have enough room for all of them. They are really cute, some are calico, and some look like they may be dalmation.

Most LFS will take the fry when they are atleast an inch in length, which will take you a couple of months. I think it all depends on the store you are taking it to. Call around or stop in and ask them.

Good luck

The fry can be fed baby brine shrimp right away, or you can stick with flake or fry bites.

In about a week they will be able to take crushed flake food. They grow pretty quick. My baby sail fin molly babies that are about a month old are all most an inch long now.
