Only one fry survived; most were eaten, and of the two that we rescued, only one lived to adulthood. It was tough when that little guy died; I’ve never raised a pet from birth before.
Seriously, though, you have neons and guppies; I don’t think an inch of that accounts for a whole gallon of water.

The small fry fish will be snacks for the others. The tank has hiding places, so a few may make it to adulthood, but odds are not many will in that confined of an area.
You could get a snake. It’s about the most carefree pet there is. My son feeds his snake once per week, and cleans up after the snake a few days later. Other than changing the water bowl out every other day or so, there is nothing else to do. We can go on vacation for two weeks and do absolutely nothing for the snake other than put his heat lamp on a timer if it’s the cool season. If only the dogs were that trouble free…

The children can learn that God ordained that some animals are food for other animals. They can also learn that a small investment can yield big rewards.
