Molly fry nursery size?

I was just curious what the smallest size aquarium could be used to hold molly fry. I have a 10g, but I don't really have any place to put it so I wondered about a smaller aquarium. Any suggestions?

I have a 10 gallon... I think it's too small... I'm gonna see if I can use my 44 gallon or buy another fish tank of similar size. The bigger the aquarium the quicker they grow. Not sure of the effects of a small aquarium on their growth and the effects of their growth on their health.

I wonder....

I haven't had fry yet. Currently breeding in a 10gal. Just purchased a clear plastic UK Gallon jar for my fry. Have another US Gallon container but I guess that will be too small.

It's my first time breeding Mollies! Hope I get fry soon. I think it should be big enough to put a heater and sponge filter in it. Like 3 - 6 UK Gallon?
