Update: So far no dead babies from medicine or ick, the medicine seems to be helping a little I am seeing reduced spots on them :)

That's wonderful news. I hope there won't be any more trouble with your spawn.

Cool

Go away Ick!!!

Just received that filter that i posted a link to. It is not a diatom filter, but does have a micron filter element for water scrubbing. Not sure if it will remove free swimming parasites or not, but certainly worth a try.....

Update: some fry now have 6 spots on their bodies and about 1/2 of them have at least one spot :( most of the bigger ones have them however most of the smaller ones dont. I went through one round of maracide on half dose so I will start again and do a full strength dose. They get 1/4 water changes every other day have salt temps at 82* F any ideas would be greatly appreciated :/

I am thinking of removing the non infested fry into a different tank also being treated see if it helps get it under control...

Sorry to hear that. Maybe you can try separating your fry into a few batches in smaller containers according to their suspected level of infection and medicate them accordingly. Chances of some surviving will be much higher. That's what I was advised to do when my first spawn was hit with some bacterial infection at 3 weeks.. Wish you all the best.

I usually take precautions against ich by putting two or three drops of methylene blue on top of a healthy dose of aquarium salt before introducing my pair. Ich didn't get me, but ironically, a bacterial infection did.. ._.

Yeah i sadly can only split them three ways but yeah i agree it will probably help raise survival. I am worried about changing their water and shocking them but i guess i can set up mini drip systems for them. I always add salt to spawning tanks but have never been able to get my hands on methylene blue. Well i guess i will pick up more heaters at work today lol.
