Feed them right away. They will either go to the top and get it or wait until it sinks. Just make sure you make the flakes as tiny as possible. You can leave them in there for weeks if you want since you only have 2. It is when you get 40 or so that they will not have much room for long. Just start cycling your 10G right away so you can move them when you want to.
Also I am not sure which breeder you have but make sure if you have the one with the slats on the side that they cannot swim out of it. Also take out the divider that you use to keep the mom from eating them b/c that will give them more room. Then put a small either floating plant or something in with them to make them feel safe. Don't forget to check your water parameters and watch the ammonia levels. Do at least a 25% water change tomorrow. Also add some slime coat to the water to help the mom b/c it is stressful giving birth.
You can watch all day but might never see another fry and then one day "POOF" there are a couple bigger ones swimming around. They hide very well if you have enough plants for them.
But def feed them asap! They will eat as soon as they are able to get to the food. Also since they were born probably between 4 and 5 am this morning (mine always deliver around then) they are probably hungry. Post some pics I want to see the little guy/girls...lol. You will be able to sex them in about 2 weeks!!! Here are some p
ics of my fry tank and my fry. The mollies are getting huge...lol. They all seem to have different hiding spots and not all are out at the same time anymore.
I took these from the side of my tank so I could try and sneak up on them...lol.
