I have 4 fry that look to be gassy. Still eatting but can't swim down very well. Not sure what to do for them since they are fry. They look besides the fact that they float.

I might only feed one time today. I have been doing daily wc too. They are growing fast. I am worried about these fry that are stuck at the top. I have had fish with bloat problems before but never fry. Can I feed them a pea? Or put them in another tank and do I tiny Epsom salt treatment? So just not feed as much for a few days? Or maybe not feed for a day?

Oh no! Poor babies! Maybe since they are such fast little growers at this stage, maybe they will heal on their own. :( I hope they get better!

I think there is a stage in the growth of fry where if you over feed they will have sbd. when you start to notice it you have to feed way less to help them recover. if you continue to over feed they do not recover. this happens with all kinds of foods, not just bbs. some times its genetics too as some fish seem to be more prone to it.

I don't feel like I am over feeding. Some fry get huge bellies and others don't eat as much. There is never any food left over. I will cut back how much maybe only feed once a day or a much smaller amount 2 times a day.

Smaller feedings. You are going to have piggies. If you notice sinkers, belly sliders and such don't feed for 12 hours then feed a very very small feeding aimed towards your smallest fry. It is so very easy to overfeed. 2-3 small feedings vs 1-2 big feedings will make sure everyone gets to eat and fewer overeat.

I have been like super crazy with these fry. I don't let the bottom of the tank get dirty. feeding 2 times a day some days I would feed a little bit around lunch time. and doing daily wc some days I will do 2 wc a day. I also have a sponge filter going and have had that on since they were 8 days old.

My fish are also raised in Tahoe the high elevation might cause them to grow big fast HAHA J/K

Good and bad news. The one fish I was seeing having a hard time was found dead thats the first to be dead in 2 weeks. So there was something wrong with him more then just eating too much. The rest of the fry are looking good with no problem swimming.

Here are my 18 day old fry.

This is a good photo to judge the average size of them. If you know what the top of a aquarium heater looks like you will know how big my fry are. This is an average size fish of mine.


Colorful big baby. It looks like a real fish now :)


Here are 3 the one on the lower left is one of my big guys.
