i am due to install my new undergravel jets tomorrow, thing is my A.cacatuoides, i have just noticed are swimming around with maybe 80 fry. can i remove them from a community tank safely? if so what would be the best way to do it! they are about 1.5mm long at the moment. i really need to get the jets in though as the tank is getting quiet crappy and is planted! and i don't want to have to keep uprooting the plants!
also on a totally different subject, i have ordered some pearl grass (Hemianthus micranthemoides) to carpet my tank and hopefully grow out so i can carpet my other tanks too. has anyone else used this and could they let me know what they think of it?

Yes, def. be sure to not have a powerful filter in your nursery tank. Oddly I found a baby cichlid living in my filter a couple months ago. He was one of the last ones that lived which he had just been feeding on stuff in the filter media. But then when I put him back in the tank he was gone the next day. It's very possible my toadfish ate him.
