ok i got it all figured out heres the plan. im going to see how the fry turn out this time just leaving them in the same tank with the adults, and i know theyll get eaten. by the next month after when there will be more pregnancies i will have had a 20-29 gallon setup for a small clown knife fish i want to get. ill have the oopen 10 gallon and maybe but another cause there really cheap(like 30 bucks and then i have to buy a heater) thats for seperating the fish. and if anyone doesnt like it hold me on this one but maybe use some of the many extra platies for feeder fish? just tell me if you think its wrong or i shouldnt because i know eventually ill have nowhere near the room for all the small fishies! now i might change the plan to making them not feeder fish if the petstore will buy them from me since its locally owned.
