DQ, it's ok. :) I still have my 5.

Aly- eeeeiii...this spawn is more like...my 5th? lol. The first two just died completely due to unknown factors. When I moved apartments they seemed to have increased luck though. :<

It's okay, it happens. It's a learning process. Sometimes eggs just aren't strong enough. Breeders who have been doing this for years still will have an entire spawn die off for unknown reasons--something beyond their control. Fish are small and fragile, and fry are even more so!

Good luck, though, that's part of the joy in breeding. Overcoming these overwhelming obstacles and bringing life into the world. :) Healthy fishies you can watch grow up!

:P It's alright, losses happen. Despite these guys being 4 months old...they sure are tiny.
I've been feeding crushes pellets, brine shrimp, chopped bloodworms, and chopped 'glassworms' (aka white mosquito larvae). And they STILL are so tiny ; A ;
