Hi all its my first post so excuse me if this is a dumb question lol. I have three red claw crabs and some mollies who over the last couple months have spat out over forty fry (despite them all being famale?) I guess they were pregnant when I bought them. Any way I was wondering if anybody has done this before or if there is some humane way I could use some of these extra fry that I don't have room for as adults that I could use them as food for my crabs. I was hoping they would eat them as they come but the little fry are too fast I guess. I'm guessing there has to be some humane way to put them down and make them easy to eat for my crabs. I just don't have the room to keep all these fish and it just seemed logical to make use of them instead of taking them to the Lfs or something. Anyone have any ideas or thoughts? Thanks!

Give them away on Craigslist, or to friends, if you can.
