Population Control :)

My tank is getting overpopulated The mollies won't stop reproducing :P I currently have 7 not-so-adult mollies (2 gold F, 1 gold M, 2 Silver F, 1 Silver M). I have more than 10 baby mollies, and a few very small ones. Tank is 15g, heavily planted.

Question: What do you do with your excess fish? Or should I give away the females?

That's really all you can do, give them away or get a bigger tank...something. Check out craigslist.org to find people who may be interested in taking a couple off your hands! Some LFS's will give you store credit for your fish, I wouldn't expect much, but it's worth a phone call! :)

Give them away, TRY to sell them, or use them for feeders.

But if you don't want anymore separate the males and females.

I know this isn't going to sound good to you, but decreasing the plant population will make the fry easier to eat for the other fish.

I always feed my fry to other fish.
