Fish fry as food?

Has anyone else thought of raising, say, a tankful of prolific breeders so that their fry can be used as food for the "better" fish at show tanks? For example, a breeder tank that gives you 20 assorted frys a week... If this is doable, what cheapest fish - even guppy/molly - breeds like crazy? My fish loves the frozen shrimp/worm but i am thinking of another 'dish' to serve as occasional treat.

Thanks

It's fine as long as these are not afflicted with diseases which can affect the health of your prized fish. A lot of us use livebearers as these are by far the most prolific. I have a pond full of feeder guppies myself for the predatory fish. Convicts and danios are other alternatives however I still prefer the livebearers.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

I've done just that with guppies, platys, mollies, and even some cichlids. The main rule in the wild is , "Big fish eat litle fish".
