I have seen this also and was thinking the same. I have limited options to separate pre and post morph stages with multiple batches.
We had some Krebs give birth last week and my missus made me use my spare tank for them... My office at home now looks like aquarium shop lol.
The larvae are hatched in saline conditions then live in fresh water to replicate what would happen in the wild. The transformation would be gradual and quite difficult to do in a small tank I would imagine. Generally the young of most aqautic creatures are sensitive to sudden change in conditions.why do they need saline conditions?why do they need saline conditions?

Know what you mean about your house when I was into breeding fishes mine got like that. What you need is a shed with some power going to it. I have a unit on an industrial estate but unfortunately I'm not always there and fry need small feeds often. Might have more luck with some shrimp though I have kribs which spawn regular, I just leave them in the main tank a bit darwinian survival of the fittest theory. I usually end up with 8>12 young that make it to maturity. I give them to the LFS down side being I end up wrecking the tank catching them. When these kribs go I may change to rams as my feature character fish.
