The iphone is actually pretty good for taking pictures.. That is what I have been using :) I do want to get an app to see if that will improve the quality though :)

Thanks! Yeah they are my pride and joy right now! They are the longest fry (at Thier age) that I have ever had. I've never used live food for fry food before though and im finding that to be a bit of a pain in the butt! I had ordered micro worms but after using the brine shrimp (as mOst of them seem to be eating them) I'm not sure I'll even use them right away. There's a ton Of live plants which is giving them tons of food... And little white belly :) so cute!

Hey so my fry are almost 10days old and I've noticed that some are dead. Ph is fine, temp is fine, ammonia is fine and they r being fed lots. But I also notice that the ones that are alive are getting bigger... Is this just something that happens?

after reading from the other logs, yeah it's pretty common to lose some along the way.

As already stated, I wouldn't be too worried. If everything seems to be alright you should be ok.. You will lose some fry just due to the fact that some are weaker than others and wont make it.. Unless you are losing BIG nimbers you should be ok.. Have you got the top of the tank covered?

Unfortunately, some fry will be lost. As long as most of them are doing well, there should be nothing to worry about. As Gloria asked, it is very important that the top be covered so that when their labranth (sp?) develops, the air must be moist so that they don't try to breath air that is too dry.

yes there is a top on the tank and plenty of condensation on the walls of the tank. there's probably only 15 or so that have died but i just wanted to make sure that it was normal. thanks y'all!
