Ok the update is finally here guys '
after daily water changes and such it was all a bit much in the smaller tank so i carefully siphoned all 230 of them into the bigger tank which is much better for them and they were doing great for aweek or so when all of a sudden i had many deaths ( i think due to not all were taking sufficient food) so was left with about 100 or so (very sad morning and freaking out to go with it)
the rest were fine and i started to feed the live rotifers which they gobbled up and loved
then the heater
decided to die and as a final ditch effort heated the water up to extreme temps for the betta and i lost alot more
as money is tight ive been forced to place the remaining 30 or so into a fry saver in my communal tank and to my supprise they are thriving and growing double size every day get feed with frozen rotifers and are as happy as pie
