Well I had a water change mishap and it killed a bunch of fry =(

I use a bucket and siphon to put in the "new" water in after suctioning the bottom of the 30 gallon. I usually just hold the bucket on the edge of the tank... I lost my balance and dropped the bucket and all the water splashed into the tank I lost 15 fry and think I may loose a few more. I lost most of my largest fry. The ones directly under the splash seemed to have blunt force trama to the head and had red marks (assuming its blood under the skin) one has a red mark on its spine and now its spine looks bent Im soo angry at myself

On a good note the 1 remaining large fry looks to have ventrals coming in the rest are so much smaller i dont see ventrals yet.

on another bad note the mom to these fry isnt doing well I went to pull her from the sorority to recondition for breeding to a different male and she was just sitting in the corner not swimming and not eating, her color isnt great but she is swimming a bit more darn why do I always loose my favorites =( Im very sad

Poor babies. I had my four biggest die because I fed them frozen food too early and they choked on it... Luckily I saved the rest. :/ my mistake.

I am sorry to hear that. I havent had any choke but I have had broken jaws in previous spawns when I fed grindal worms before they were ready

Unfortnately due to my water change blunder I lost all but 3 fry. The 3 remaining were my smallest that hung out on the opposite end of the 30 gallon tank.

Now for a lil good news, of the remaining 3 fry the largest has ventrals keep in mind these were the runts and the largest looks to be only at 4 week mark the other two look about 3 weeks even though they are a lot older. what a bummer this was too loose so many fry to such an accident.
