unless you have another tank with an established filter and the same water form the tank they bred in not to mention small live foods like infasoria or possibly viniger eels then i would recomend leaving them in the tank and letting the parents take over.the first few times they may not be able to fend off the other tank mates or might actualy consume them themselves but after a time or two they will usualy tend to the fry on there own.

if the tank is established enough and planted there should be sufficent micro organisms sufficent for a few days until you can grab a small fry food from the local pet store.some people dont even go this far and just allow the fry to be herded around until they can accept powdered flake foods.as i stated above there are also viniger eels wich are small for fry and then you can add micro worms to the mix as well as baby brine shimps when they are a week old or more.
