So I am thinking I may try to move them to a smaller tank, any ideas?
I know the fry are sensitive and delicate at this stage. So if any one could suggest how to go about doing this I would be grateful.

I wouldn't advise moving them at the moment. But if you need the tank for another spawn,- Fill the new tank with just enough old water (if your cupping fry, fill to the height of the cup). Cup fry and slowly release. You can also spoon them. Try not to chase them around the tank. Once fry have been moved, fill new tank with new water using the drip system.

Thanks Indjo I am not ready to move them at the moment, maybe start of next month so in a few weeks. By then they should be bigger. I am just trying to make sure I have them fed well and tank cleaned right now.
I have another tank set up for the first of my two upcoming spawns. I would like to reuse the current tank the fry are in.
Also the fact there are about 5 fry in a 20 gallon makes it hard to find them and make sure they are eating right.

I attach a piece of old panty hose at the bottom of the air line when cleaning the bottom of the tank. The poo will go through a run in the hose, but the fry won't.
