What else is in the tank? how big? Right now they will do their best to guard them but you will need another tank if you want to raise up a few/bunch.

I got some out into a fry tank and the others will be with their parent fish for now. I didn't notice them because I hadn't looked into my husbands tank in a few days but they must be a few days unhatched. Thanks I will watch their size and how the parents are doing with them and possibly take more out.
