Possible Molly Rescue?

So, my friend has some mollies. They had babies, and she refuses to give them to the pet store even though her tank is very overstocked- it's only a 10 gallon. I believe that she has six of them, including the 'fry'. At this point, they're bigger.
But, she offered for me to take them.
Downside? My biggest tank is a 10 gallon.
Upside? I'm going to be moving soon, and after the move, my dad said that he'd let me get another tank. Hopefully, a 29g or bigger, but I might have to settle with a 20.

Is this a good idea to take them, especially if the 10 gallon is basically just quarentine? Any advice for if it is a good idea?

Well, if you believe you'll take better care of them, go for it.

Most mollies will max at 3-4" in freshwater, so using a 10 gallon for a few months wouldn't be the death of them if you stay on top of water changes and make sure to keep them healthy.

Alright! Hopefully I'll be able to get them.
I'll definitely try my best to keep them healthy, and maybe even give one away to my lfs (it's a good one, too) to lessen the stock.
