Aquarium Advice Apprentice
Jan 21, 2008
My name is Christen and I have a 30 gallon tank. I have had my tank for 3 years and I have had small fish - mollies, platies, small tiger barbs and ghost shrimp. I have the same fish I had when I got the tank, but the numbers have dwindled from about 15 to 4! My sister has a tank of Jack Dempseys which just had over 200 (yikes) babies. She is trying to get rid of them and wants to give me some. How can I handle this? Do I just take the babies and then as they grow older move them or my other fish into another tank? Any advice?

I would post this in the FW section, since I'm a saltie and won't be able to help you.
Dempsey's are relatively large, aggressive cichlids that will cause some problems in your community tank once they grow up a bit.
