so long story short my boyfriend's sister's friend had a male Molly who bred with two females and needed to rehouse them so i decided to take papa fish and 5 of his kids and rn i'm currently setting up my 10 gallon as a temporary home for the babies so they ain't sitting in my old 1.5 ish gallon hermit crab carrying box with no heater or filter until they grow.the babies look about 2 weeks old but how long should i wait until i put them in with the others in the 50 gallon tank.i am more so worried the silver dollars will try to eat them or the strong filter will suck em up

also on a side note maybe for breeders how do i tell the sex on these fish so i can possibly rehouse the females so papa fishie doesn't try to breed again

yes the tank needs a water change that was next on my to do list
