I dont know what it is but after a cm and before they get an inch long I always seem to loose more then half of them :( Good news is many of them are starting to get better I cut their feedings down to 1 and started with epsom salt instead of aq salt heres hoping that might help. I hear a diet of micro worms can lead to swd I really hope that its not the case.

Might have been the exposure to ammonia that knocked them off. I had the same thing happen in my killifish grow-out. Lost everyone except my biggest because my ammonia was hovering around 0.25ppm even with daily 50% water changes.

With fry, it could also be velvet or a bacterial infection.

It's sad to have something like this happen when so much effort has already been put in.

I thought about ammonia but it never goes over .1 which would account for the smaller ones dying but I lost the biggest and the smallest the medium ones are fine :/ And at first I thought the ick came back but they are clear of anything outside of them...

I am so sorry to hear your babies aren't doing well Creat! Little red dots on their bellies before they die....hmmm. Do you think it could be a internal bacterial infection? I'm just pondering on that thought because of the red bellies and the clamped fins with no visible external symptoms. If so, isn't metronidazole good for mixing with food for treating for anaerobic bacterial infections, it also clears quickly with carbon filters and has no impact on the bacterial bed.

I don't know if this helps any but I hope the rest of your babies pull through!

Best Wishes,
Sincerely

If you have a spare tank/jar (1g for 15 will temporarily do) move them. Don't use anything from their original tank. Then clean their tank thoroughly - medicate or what ever you feel needs to be done. Keep it dry for a day or two, if possible under direct sun. Refill but leave it for another day. then move everyone back in.

Not growing is an indication of health issues, regardless of water change and feedings. And since they're dieing one by one, it's safer to assume that there's some kind of parasite in their tank.

Good luck.

They look big enough to be netted. I'd rather not use old water because it contains something harmful to fry. Cupping them may also move parasites.
