wait till they're free swimming to feed them. I can't remember how long it took mine to free swim, but it seemed like a long time.

What size tank are they in? Try siphoning the dead fry and what ever waste is on the floor. Put the waste bucket at a level close to the tank's water surface so the siphon's suction isn't too strong.... Reduce 50% of the water either by siphon or by scooping. Then refill with the drip system.

Do you have snails or something for "cleaning" crew in there? They're useful in these situations. IMO their wastes aren't as bad as dead/left over food thus can reduce the need of water changes.

As much as I hate saying this.... sorry but prepare yourself for a total lost. Your fry doesn't sound healthy enough. Maybe this was why daddy ate them (not sure). A good water change may boost their condition - enough to make them eat. Just don't give up on them and keep trying to feed them. Remember to siphon out any wastes.

I've never used them in newly hatched fry. So I'm not sure. Perhaps it would be better to use something very slow - common pond snails are cheap and will do the job, but you need quite a few.

At this stage, snails are the best option. Right now, I'm using cone snails that hitched a ride on some plants I bought. Cory cats are catfish, so they WILL eat anything that will fit in their mouth. Best of luck.

your pair is super nice.... If you are selling/shipping any of the fry once they are mature, I'd love to buy a female! LOL Can't wait to see how they turn out! Congrats!
