    image.jpg So I have 1 female silver molly, 1 male silver molly and 1 make dolmation molly.

    Just recently found out my female just gave birth to about 30-40 fry, and I only have a 20 gal tank.

    Petsmart doesn’t take babies, what can I do??

    If you leave them in the community tank, they will probably get eaten.
    If you wanted to save them and grow them out, you could post on here that you are giving them away, or donate them to a non-chain store, who would probably be happy to take them off your hands.

    I wish I could keep them. Petsmart is the only pet store near me ..next non chain pet store would be about 2 hours away...I guess i would have to let nature take its course and see what happens.. thanks

    Yeah you can let the mommy and the daddy eat them (oh they will) and other fish you have in the tank. Seems like thw best choice. Petsmart most likley won't take them unless they are grown and probably won't even do that at all. So just have your fish have a bite to eat.
