If I used store bought water (jugs I mean) would that help the hardness? Also what would the ph lvl need to be around for the fry? I will try again but I'm going to hopefully get some duckweed to add to the tank as well just in case since I heard fry love that.
The little fry went back to sticking to the side of the cup again, but regardless he's hanging in there. I have bbs ready for when its time for his first meal, but it's kind of hard to know what that will be. He does still have a white tummy though so I'm not going to push it right now.
Also thanks so much everyone, I am feeling a bit better now. I guess my boyfriend is right, I do get attached to quickly, but that is something that will probably never change.
