Exclamation fry on the surface of the water.

I have about 30,2 week old fry left from my spawn and some are always on the surface of the water.The rest are eating well.Should i cull them or let them stay there?

Since this is a surface dwelling species and at 2 weeks old being the time some will start to develop their labyrinth organ....I would say this is normal behavior-provided that they are not having buoyancy issues and eating...etc.....not belly sliding or anything.....If you haven't already-I would get the air above the water warm and humid-I use plastic veggie wrap-but anything will work-you just want to see condensation......

Thanks,but they are 3 times smaller than my others that are eating.And the ones that are on the surface are quite small and they never come down to eat.Will they survive that long.

I had some fry that scooted the bottom at 2 weeks, at 3 they all swim fine. They were the runts, a lot smaller then their siblings. I would give it at least another week or two.
