Anyway, Ihave noticed that all my females are hanging around the bottom in corners. I woke up this morning and I had 6 baby fry!! My question is this, What should I do with the fry as far as keeping them safe and not get eatin. I dont have any live plants although, I have my eye on a few. I would like to keep at least a few of the babies until the tank is full. I have a 30 gallon tank. I need all the help I can get... Your help, information, and anything else is greatly appreciated.

What do you mean you let it cycle "once"?

A good idea (what i use) get some small ceramic plant pots. Get them just small enough so adult fish can't get in, it works really well!!
