I thought you were planning on keeping them in there,sorry Arch!!!
That is why I said the water will turn faster than you can clean it out.

@arch; 1g can be used for breeding as long as you are prepared for more work. I have also bred in 4ltr water. But not 1cm water in a 1g tank/jar. So I still say you need to add more water. At least fill it half way . . . if you don't want to move it this early. Then do as much water change daily and refill with drip system - by drip system I mean fill half a gallon of water in 1-2 hours (about 1 drop/sec). And try to make the water flow from the wall and not drop on the fry - safer for weaker fry. This will avoid shock due to water parameter changes.

If you want to move them, do what myates suggested. They should be OK

Ok noted. Will try to fill the tank half slowly as you suggested. I felt that the fries are a lil too early to move them. Plan to move only when they are about 2 weeks old. When I see a dead fry every morning I wake up, it felt really bad. Gotta do as much as possible to take good care of them.

I'll check them daily with hopes that the fries stop dying every day. Reduce the mortality rate till the fries are old enough. If they still do, I'll will switch to a larger tank asap.

I was on vacation for 3 days. I had a friend to look after my fries and sadly most of them died continuously for that 3 days. I realize that the water was rather stinky, like a foul smell and had a feeling that some type of bacteria/virus was killing them. I quickly transfer them to a new tank. Left with about 6-7 of them. This morning when I woke up, there are no deaths. =.='' Damn...
