Put them in a bag and throw it in the garbage, which is what I do. Feeding works to.

Ok I have got a couple questions.

I have a 20 gal full of kribs and someone is buying all of them so I will clear the tank out. Now I've got a 5 full of guppies and a 10 with 3 bettas. The female is in a jar. So 4 bettas total.

Should I keep the 5 full of guppies and breed in the 10 or 20 then keep the other bettas in the 10 or the 20. Or do out the guppies into the 10 or 20 and use the 5 or other tank for breeding and storing bettas?

I would breed in the 10, that way they won't need to be moved as soon.. have some room to grow. Then you will need a grow out.. if you keep the spawn small you can use the 20, but if you have a good amount, over 30 fry.. then I would suggest getting a larger grow out tank.

Sounds like you don't have enough space.. the guppies should be in a 10g+, a 5g is rather small for multiple fish when it comes to the bioload. And you have 3-4 bettas that will need to be homed elsewhere, as you will need the 10 for the spawning and the 20 for grow out (at very minimal you would use a 20 long.. only if you cull heavily).

I would get a 30g+ for grow out, get a 10g for your guppies, use the 20g for your bettas divided up, use the 10g you have for your guppies, and the 5g can be used for additional bettas - if there are one or two you want to keep to breed in the future you can divide it up to grow them out in.

Don't forget all the jars/containers needed for the juveniles, and a way to heat them up.

Sorry I do have a 50 gal that I plan to use for a grow out aswell. And the guppies are my feeders for my cons.
