Ops that is too much salt. I have to remove some water and add unsalted water in. Hopefully they are ok.

Fries can only take 1/2 dose of adult (adult 1 tsp/gal so fries 0.5tsp/gal). Good thing I check before too late.

I think Aqua Salt should solve this problem cause it reduces the slime coat and the whatever that is should fall off, Hope it all works out Tan

Today is about 20 hours with aquarium salt at 1/2 adult dose. They still look icky. I wonder should I add little more salt? But I decided to give it 2 more days with this dose of salt to see if it helps before I add little more salt.

Instant Baby Brine Shrimp
I just got the first Instant Baby Brine Shrimp this morning. I feed my fries this afternoon with Instant BBS. My impression is that the fries eat but not like go after it. IMO the fries eat decap in similar behavior, which is not too enthusiastic about it. Let tries a few days and observe to see what happen. I may go back and hatch the bbs.

Hi Mark,

There are some very big fries about 50 of them; these are doing fine. The big ones seems to get much better and healthier. There are about 50 smallest fries they have much more ick on them. Another 50 fries are medium size, I hope they seem get little better too. I hope all big fries and half of the medium size fries will survive. I have little hope for the smallest fries. Smallest fries look so fragile and weak.

Today I will switch to live bbs to feed them hopefully they will grow faster and healthier.

Tan

I hope the fry recover from the ick. I'm glad the larger ones are doing so well. Keep up the great work.
