We've had molly children many, many times in our community tank Wink They're surprisingly easy to care for and they do most of it themselves Smiley Especially since you've provided lots of hiding places in the form of plants Cheesy
Just be sure to have some smaller pieces of flakes ready so they can grab a bit of food now and then Smiley It would be ideal if you've got some algae growing on the plants or the back side of the tank!

Doesn't matter. Not in the slightest.

But it is of course smarter to give them to your family as soon as the fish have grown a little so that they'll make it on their own and can compete for food.
