Will Rosy Minnows Eat Fry

The fry in question are some molly fry that are already a little over a month old. They differ in size; some are almost half an inch long, others are closer to 3/8. They are in a 5.5 gallon.

I have a tiny 2.5 gallon that I keep a small number (@ 5-8) rosy minnows for my oscar. I need to use it for a sick molly (yeah, the same one I wrote about before over in the disease section a while back.. keeps getting ick I even did two medicine dosing sessions with it.).

I was wondering if I could move the minnows into the fry tank without the fry getting eaten. I don't feel comfortable with putting them into the main tank and most of them are destined for the oscar anyway so I would just as soon leave them in the 5.5 gallon.

thanks.

Thanks. The minnows will not be around long enough to get to 3 inches. They are snacks for my oscar as are the fry. I just want the oscar to enjoy the molly fry, not the minnows.
