Removed ~15 fry, now what?

I just removed about 15 fry (danio, very small) from the Discus tank and I am moving them to the danio dank. I tested with one and he was gobbled up immediately - or he escaped but I don't think so. So I have a bunch of fry in the bucket and I don't want them to become food, I don't want to put them back in the Discus tank either because it is a pain to cacth them and it makes the Discus nervous. Should I just leave them in the bucket? or get a breeding net? Or what?

i'd put them in a net, but thats me. i dont think keeping them in a bucket is a good idea.
why cant they stay in with your discus until they are larger?

Because they get very, very hard to catch when they get bigger - I destoyed my tank catching the other 7 adults I have.

I would either put them in a breeding net or set up a small tank just for them.
