If you saw how many water changes I have done, you might have a heart attack LOL. Yesterday I even moved my spawn into a 5 gallon tank and added 50% more water and a bubble stone. I just use filtered water from my own filtration system, then I leave the water out for 24hrs to be sure anything else left in the water evaporates. I swear I have not lost one fry due to water changes. I have heard that the fry emit a chemical to make the other fry grow slower, so that's why I try to replace at least 5% of the water a day. You are doing such a great job BTW!! I cant wait to see your spawn I really love that coloration!

My one fry Squito, he got caught in my net without me knowing and was transferred basically from 82 degree water to 90+ degree water of different chemistry, he lived in my mosquito larvae bucket outside in the hot direct sun with some duckweed for a week before i one day went to scoop losquito larvae and spotted him! THEN he had to re-adapt to the cooler inside temps again. Not to say he wasnt particularly hardy, but i was really shocked at how tough they were :) After the first few water changes youll feel more confident. I put an airstone on an airhose and siphon the fresh water into their tanks after i clean their floors, its really gradual and efficient :)

OMG I had something like that happen! I was doing a water change and I missed a fry that I had siphoned out. I found him in the "trash" water bowl next to the tank days later! He was fine but man was I shocked! Good thing I don't just throw the water our after I am done lol
