| || | Hi, Almost all fish will eat baby fry, even the mother will eat their young. I use to take the fry out of the tank & put them in their own 10 gallon tank I already had set up. (Most fish have the majority of their fry in the evening.) However, 20 tanks later, I just leave the baby fry in the same tank with all of the other fish - As long as there are enough hiding places for the babies, some will always survive. Good luck with your new young! :

If I do have babies will the neons eat them? Will they be safe if I put all the other mollies in there without the neons? So many questions so little time........
