I honestly don't what happened either. :/ I think I'm going to jar him, but still float him in the heated tank.

I rarely see dead fry after the first 2 weeks because I get them used to new water very early. I bet that's what happened.

Well I've been doing 50-75% water changes for a week now, and they were all fine until today...

Ok so the big fry is doing great...seems like he grows a bit everyday.He looks like a ST.I can't wait for him to start showing some color. :)

Now on to the 2nd batch, I'm really happy with this spawn. They are growing nicely, and most of them hang out in the surface, something the ones from the other spawn didn't do.I counted 22 fry on the surface today but there could always be more hiding in the moss or at the bottom of the tank.

There's always more than you think. I had 6 large fry moved into a different tub on Saturday and counted 13 total fry. I poured a bucket of water in and like 10 more fry started to get flung around.

lol I'm pretty sure there's more. I moved the moss earlier and about 3 fry popped up so I know there's more, the 22 I counted were just the ones hanging out in the surface.

I'm sorry about your fry. I'm glad they didn't get munched.

So today I noticed two things.

I'm noticing a bit of blue sheen on the big fry (I really need to come up with a name for him :P).

And today I added about 1 gallon of water to the 2nd batch's tank. They're growing fairly well, all of them have great big white bellies filled with VE (Starting BBS tomorrow), and I still counted around 15-25 fry swimming around. I'm really happy with the growth of these fry, even though they're bearly 5 days old.
