What to do with my baby fishies?
Ok, so I put a post about having baby fishies.. originally I was ecstatic with about 4 babies.. but .. now I have like 25 of em and I only have a 10 gallon tank. I am worried about bio load when they get bigger. (Before you ask, no I can't get a bigger tank right now LOL). This is my WCMM tank and so it sits at about 72 so it's too cold for a betta I think, although I could put a heater in there to keep it at about 76? I think that's the top of the temp range for the white clouds.
A. Should I just euthanise some now?
B. The fish store won't take them, they have a whole tank of about 290384 of them and sell them for 25 cents each and the larger ones for 3/$5 (the ones I bought)
C. I put an ad up on craigslist promoting them for beginner tanks and rain barrels
D. Does anyone (local) want them? I live in Portland, Oregon (sorry I don't ship, I have no idea how, and frankly don't have time)
I probably have about 4-7 weeks before adult hood.. any suggestions would be apprecaited. I got my ghost shrimp because someone told me they would kill em and they have a small bio load, but they aren't touching em. A suggestion about 1 fish that would eat fry but leave the adults alone would be cool. It'd be fed flake food if no fry are in the tank
