    Hi everyone!
    My gold dust molly fry are 3 weeks old. I wanted to wait at least two more weeks before i add them to a community tank as i dont think they are big enough quite yet .What do you all think? Should i wait two more weeks or longer? Sorry for the bad pictures these little fry are healthy fast swimmers so its hard to get a really good pic of them.

    Lot of variables here -
    What else is in the community tank? Presumably things that will eat them. Is it heavily planted? How opposed are you to losing some?

    No worries! I didn't mean to be offensive. Some people aren't opposed to losing a few fry because they're such prolific breeders and it's kind of the natural way of things. I wasn't sure.
    You've got some very cute babies. Good luck with them.

    It really depends on how big they are. Some of my fry are nearly fully grown at only 3 months old. Some take 6 months. If you aren't very worried about losing one, maybe in a few weeks add only 1 fry and see how the other fish react.
