It's just hitting me harder than normal because my family, boyfriend included keeps telling me that ive been wasting money on getting things for the fry because this happens. Last time it was my friend breeding but I was helping with the supplies. Same thing happened to her fry :(
I had completely cleaned the tank the day I put the pair in. I had live plants in here, not sure what they are called though but I can take a picture if I need to. I also had 2 IAL in there. I checked the temperature every hour to make sure it was working I had it from 82-84 degrees.
I found two fry alive but one didnt make it. The last one I have in a cup with completely clean water that I floated in the tank to be the same temperature before putting him in there. He just started free swimming I think.. He stays at the top unless he starts zipping around like crazy, if he does he sinks to the bottom. So i'm keeping a close eye on him.. It would mean the world to me if he survived to adulthood..
When I shined the flashlight on the tank though I saw a lot of these small worms.. would they have been the cause? If it was velvet.. how can I prevent it from happening again? I'm going to be checking the water lvls soon.
