8 baby mollies....what do i do?
 
I have 8 baby mollies and i'm unsure what to do for them. I have them in a net breeder. Any advice or tips would be very useful. Thank you in advance.

Is your tank planted? If it is my advice is to take them out the breeder. They will grow better and be happier outside it and can hide in the plants. Breeders don't give very good circulation.

Mollies breed like nothing else on earth so you will be overrun very qiockly if you're not careful. It seems cruel but after a batch or 2 you may have to stop "saving" the fry otherwise where would you put them all?

For food a mixture of baby brine shrimp, crushed flake food and egg yolk crumbled and mixed with water is good.

Congrats on the new babies! :)
