That's a lot of fry to keep inside a breeder box. I would transfer therm to a separate tank if you have one.

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty

u should move them to their own tank becuase u have so many, but if u allow circulation in the little breader tank then it should be fine. what are u feeding them?

(1) 55 Gallon Community
(2) 29 Gallons -Livebearers - Saltwater (Live rock)
(2) 10 Gallons -Dwarf Puffers
