I lowered the water level (changing the bad design of the hang on heater for their original submersible heater) and will re-introduce them. One has been panting (like when introducing a new, very stressed, fish to a tank)

Aww.. transferring them so young is always risky if the water isn't exactly the same :( I hope they all pull through for you..

Yeah I learned a while back to always move fry over to another tank using only their water and then slowly re-introduce different water over a couple of hours.

Lost a whole tank of fry that I thought would be old enough to cope with a slight change in parameters. Turns out they couldn't and there was nothing I could do.

Now I regularly move very young fry into new tanks and rarely lose any.

Hopefully they pull through for you. Fry raising can be so frustrating when things don't work out!

I have my spawn in a small rubbermaid container.. found easier to spawn in small spaces.. so I just put holes in the tub so it mixes with the tank water then I can just release them into the 10g at a very young age to grow a little more (before going into grow out tank) without worry as the water will be the same.. then drip new water in slowly afterwards. I'm freakishly paranoid about some things lol

Well I made sure to acclimate them slowly, moreso than my adults. So, now they are in 5 gallons of water, their original heater, and most are doing great except some(the littlest which is the one with the panic mode lol). I placed Saran Wrap on the top (excluding a part at the end so they can breathe) to keep it humid for them. Temperature is the same as it was in their old tub, 83 degrees. I left out the bubbler at this time, to avoid an upheaval.
