Nothing wrong with that, especially for Convict fry population control. They breed like rabbits and you can't give those suckers away. Lol

Its been quite the undertaking to say the least... I hired a guy to move them... he cleaned the tank and gravel and set it all up for me. He did not however clean the rocks.... I spent 2.5 hours on Sunday cleaning all my rocks, vacuuming the gravel and doing a water change! Holy hannah is it ever a lot of work! But honestly I didnt hate any of it!! As much as I love watching all the fish I definitely need to find homes for a bunch of them... way too many as of right now!
