    I had 4 minnows and a snail in my tank. Two of the minnows died but the other two had about forty babies which I left in the tank to see what would happen. Two survived and are healthy but still only about (roughly) 1cm long while the two big ones are about 5cm.
    One of the minnows is dying now after being bullied and doesn't look like it will survive the next 48 hours. I don't know whether I should get more minnows because I'm scared they will eat the babies seen as about 38 were eaten before.

    What do you think? Thanks for any help

    I think if you get more, they will eat the fry.

    That's my think. Do you think I should wait a couple of months.

    I would wait until they are too big for the adults to want to eat.
