No extra tanks? You could raise them with a sponge filter in your QT and hope no one gets sick!

I'm thinking I'll raise them until they mature, then sell them. Does that sound ok?

Yeah, that sounds fine. =] You can sell them when they're about 1.5 inches probably. Good luck!

That's what I'll do if she drops soon, but if I have time, might as well. Especially since I'm getting a pair of rams eventually. It'd be nice to have some on hand. Plus... The fry food helps them grow faster... Which means more $ in my pocket faster for one thing, but more importantly, the faster I can get them into good homes.

Miss Molly is squared off again lol. I'm not moving her this time... I'm just letting the fry fend for themselves. Any survivors survive and get moved, but I don't want to keep breeding livebearers. Too much work with too little profit.
