OK, I have a 2.5gallon, 5 gallon, or 10gallon for the coming fry. I also have a live sponge filter for filtration.

Depending on the number of fry, the smaller tanks may be too small to use.
In my 4L jars I used to use I would start with 50 to a jar to start but had to add more jars with fewer in them as they grew.
My favorite containers became the muck bucket set up which is a small version of the large tubs that Dan Underwood was using at the time and probably still is.

I would go with the 10 gallon myself, more water volume, more room for errors. But you're going to have to make sure you're vacuuming up the waist daily, and wiping down the sides and bottom every couple days.
