I'd keep the temp at 24-26 degrees Celsius and get some livebearer fry eliminators.:) Barbs, tetras, danios and rasboras will answer the problem of eliminating fry. Livebearers will easily overload your tank.

Sent from my desktop or phone or whatever else I am holding on to  2
I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

or you could do like we do, Feeder supply agreed to buy as many fry that we could bring them as long as there around half grown.

You could go with all males to not worry about fry but then you would have to worry about fin nipping and other agressive behavior. Also tell us the gallons or the total volume of the tank, just saying 2 feet could mean almost anything. Its the volume we want to find out if the fishes waste production will over crowed the tank.

What livebearer do you want?

They all have different needs and different personalities
