Unwanted WCMM fry, what should I do?

So I've got a small tank that's planted and stocked with White Cloud Mountain Minnows.This is my first planted tank, its only little and can't really handle any more fish, however 1 female has laid eggs and another looks extremely gravid. Will the fry just die off naturally if the tank is unable to support them or should I do something with them?

My understanding is WCMM arent particularly voracious egg or fry eaters, so the likelyhood is that at least some eggs/fry will survive. Their fry also dont need any special kind of food, so again they arent likely to starve if you are feeding the adults.

Can you find someone to take any unwanted fish? Local fish store perhaps?

One thing to bear in mind is tank temperature. Fry wont do so well at a typical tropical water temperature. What is your tank temperature?
