I've kept them in 1 gallon vases before and they'll be fine provided you keep up with the maintenance. And when they are young (ie fry that you are raising) they can be kept in small jars if you do the water changes often. While they might not enjoy it as much as having gallons of water to swim through I don't know of any breeders that provide multiple gallons of water to each individual.

Well, the betta and the gourami are still best buddies, will even share a shrimp pellet.
The molly fry is big enough that her dalmation spots are showing nicely. The baby is about 1/2" long now and swims the whole water column freely.

On a side note, I gotta find out how long a molly is gravid. One of my mostly white dalmations has seemingly been gravid since I got her (just after xmas), and I'm starting to worry that she has a problem. Seems pretty healthy and is still eating/pooping fine, but she has a huge belly. Can the babies get stuck in there? Can they get pregnant fast enough that it just 'seems' like she is always gravid?
Although I have no doubt that most of the fry would get eaten, I would have expected more than one to suvive so far if she had released any more.
Sometimes I wish fish could talk...

Well I think my longest has been less than a month. I just got a new boy, 1 week ago, and he even though he is pissed at me for daring to clean his bowl and move his plant, he has survived so far. I hope he trucks it out for a long time to come =)
