Well, you are the winner so far, at least in terms of personal experience! I think I'd have to hang myself if I had 2500 fry to raise. Not seriously, of course.
I have 80+ fry at the moment, but it's 3 separate drops - 40 guppies (there were 51 originally, but I think some got eaten because they kept swimming through the tank divider), and 20-something each of 2 platy drops. They're all in a 20g long together, but I don't know what I will do with them when they are too big for that tank and not big enough to sell yet.
