If the fry are too small, they will get eaten up. Like Loha said, wait a while and then you can add the fry when you think they can hold their own in the tank with the adult fish.

automatic feeder? You can set it up for multiple feedings per day.

if you have some plants in the tank they don't need to be fed...they will nibble on the plants..
