Short-term, it will be fine.  It is not a sufficient solution to a breeding
program.  For example, when you have thirty to forty fry that are almost a
half inch long, what are you going to do?  They won't make it in either tank.
And while you're putting size on them and the pair spawn again, then what?

A bigger tank for rearing fry will eventually become mandatory.
