The parents are doing beautifully and I will be repeating the spawn in about a month because...

I came home today to find most of my fry dead. I have not been doing anything different with the water or the food.
The fry were at the stage where they start breathing from the surface and I had filled the tank to the top a couple of days ago... guess is was a bad idea. I think they didn't figure it out and drowned. They had been doing great before and it's the first time I lose a spawn.
I have a handful of fry that are still swimming but I will cull them when I empty out the tank.

Thanks everyone for following and sharing this past month with my fry... will look forward to actually raising a spawn while you watch.

Oh! And I will be visiting my mother in Puerto Rico (where I grew up) and I already told her to locate an AIL tree for me so I can go and collect leaves! I'm running out so I was going to order but free leaves are better! Depending on how many I can get a hold of, I will share They have to be dry for me to collect and it's been raining there a lot so we'll have to see.

Moderators: Guess we can close this thread

I'm so sorry to hear of the mass loss of your fry. The parents are so beautiful, I'm sure the fry would have been too.

I really hope you do continue with another spawn. I wish the beat for you and you future fry. I hope that you are okay and have a great time in Puerto Rico. I have never been over there and want to visit so bad. My grandfather said he would take me when I got older and that was when I was about 9-10. I really had no idea that Indian Almond Trees grow over there. Thats amazing. I should have had him or my grandma take a few for me. Though I wish I knew what I know now then.

I'm sorry for the loss of your spawn. It's got to be really sad/frustrating for you. I know this pair will make a great future spawn. :)
