I may have freaked out after I found those 2 dead however this morning we all are still alive yay thanks for being patient with me guys so here are some pics of the babies moved into their container. Overall I have had 4 die total out of about 30 good numbers at least to me for a first time pair spawn.

Update: I found one more dead fry and a few clampy ones so I tested my water and I am not happy... the tank ammonia is at .1 ppm and the nitrate at <20ppm the most troubling thing though is the water pH is at freaking 8.2 not bad considering I have to use a saltwater pH kit to test my tap water :/ but still bad I decided to move a natural wood log from another tank to it. The wood helps as normally its in my tanks to keep the water pH near 7.4 but the tank that it came from had high nitrate levels and I am afraid for the fry I will add more water to the tank tonight and hope it helps...

Best of luck. 30 fry is really good for a first spawn. My first spawn had 4 that survived to adulthood.

Well the log helped but they are still lethargic. I am loosing about 1 a day I am maybe down to 15 fry. They look like they have over eatten and bloated... I added epsom salt and it helped a little also havent fed them in 24 hrs.... I am sad now...
