21L sounds more like 5-6 but idk. It should be ok. depends how much fry you got!

Also, for sexing fry. I notice the males get more colorful earlier on, even before they develop their gonopodium...

"He situates himself in relation to time. He takes his place in it. He admits that he stands at a certain point on a curve that he acknowledges having to travel to its end. He belongs to time, and by the horror that seizes him, he recognizes his worst enemy. Tomorrow, he was longing for tomorrow, whereas everything in him ought to reject it."

i had that problem so i separated my males and females and my males haven't seen them at all since then.
For a little will after that they we still having fry because the females can store sperm for 6 months but now they have stopped, but occasionally i get a single fry born. Its much easier now.
When i want fry i just pop a male and female in together.
