 Keep  them  separate  from  larger  fish  and  keep  the  temperature  at  mid  20s.
 Molly  fry  are  pretty  hardy,  so  not  too  much  care  required  there.  
 Some  java  moss,  or  bushy  plants  in  the  tank  is  also  good  for  them,  keeps  them  snacking  when  you  aren't  around.
 
 Mine  get  powdered  tetrabits  or  flake  for  food.

 last  year  same  time  I  got  a  batch  of  45  molly  fries.  I  was  able  to  raise  all  of  them  in  a  single  bare  bottom  12  ltr  fish  bowl.  I  know,  that  sounds  bit  unhealthy,  but  I  got  success.  Keep  the  temparature  fixed  to  28  degree  and  give  them  Dust  flake  food  twice  a  day.  They  will  be  fine.  After  every  2  days  change  100%  water  of  the  bowl  and  give  it  a  good  scrub.  Smile

 Not  at  all  unhealthy,  Thirtha.  I've  raised  mollies  in  smaller  tanks.
 The  present  batch  I  have  is  in  a  tank  which  only  gets  water  topped  up  Shocked  
 
 One  problem  however  is  that  some  fry  will  grow  faster  than  others  and  start  outcompeting  them  for  food.  The  smaller  fry  eventually  perish.\  because  of  lack  of  food.

 Dear  Tirthankar
 One  doubt  100%  water  change  and  scrubbing(removing   algae)  is  it  necessary?
 Regards

 As  it  is  a  bare  bottom  12  ltr  bowl......  I  suggest  you  to  change  100%  water.  And  scrubbing  the  bowl  is  not  for  algae.  Within  2-3  days  the  glass  wall  will  get  a  slim  coat  so  better  clean  them  to  avoid  any  parasite  or  bacterial  infection.  Smile

 Culling  the  fries  size  wise  and  feeding  them  make  the  smaller  fry  get  his  share.

 just  give  them  powdered  pellets  it  ll  do.they  are  really  hardy  so  dont  worry  too  much  and  do  some  regular  water  changes  if  you  are  feding  yoke  because  it  might  foul  the  water.wiht  mollies  you  can  expect  more  offsprings  along  the  way.i  had  trouble  keeping  up  with  mine  ,used  to  give  birth  very  often  until  i  had  to  give  away  so  many  fishes.  Thumb Up  just  feed  them  powdered  pellets  that  ll  do!
