Default baby anglefish ocala florida

I have a community tank where my 8 month old pair of angels are the proud
parents of 100+ fry. I don't know if they'll make it, but the parental
units are doing a great job, and I've removed the other residents of the
tank. They hatched last Thursday and are now swimming (or I should say
are
being herded) around the tank in a school. This has never happened to me
before so I don't know what will happen next, but if any survive, is there
anyone in the Ocala area that would be interested in having some of them?
I
don't want to get involved with mailing fish around, this would be on a
pick
up or drop off basis. Mom is a gold veil and dad is gold marble, so the
babies will probably have lots of orange on them. I got these two at a
local fish store, so don't know their actual genetics.

===================
If you can't find local homes for them most mom and pop pet shops will take
them off your hands for credit or will give you a few bucks. But they
usually want them about the size of nickels.

I hoped that if I could give them away to people on the boards, they may
have a better chance of survival than if they were sold to any tom dick or
harry in a pet store. I'll probably have to go that route, but I thought
I'd try here first. I know they're too little to give away now, but judging
by how fast their parents grew, it won't be long til they're packed like
sardines in my 55!

Since it is now late June and school is almost out, this may not be the
appropriate time!

But, why not contact your local primary school, go in and give a half
hour talk as a science project and offer a few fish to any kid interested?

Both the kids and the teacher would love this.
