Will are they swimming up dragging there tail....

If so.
Happen to me a few time.
My guess is the different temp from the air and water or water change.

It may or may not be a problem....sometimes fry will swim odd on occasion-the weaker ones need to rest more often....generally with these kinds of swimming problems...its best to just let what is going to happen...happen....if they die remove them or if they look to be struggling too much-cup and float them with some Epsom salt 1tsp/gal..I wouldn't treat the whole tank if its not needed, however, Epsom salt is not going to hurt them either..if you have more live plants to add floating for them to rest on-this will help too......sometimes its just weak fry and/or fry that are not getting enough nutrition...survival of the fittest kind of thing........

Good luck...I hope they get better.....

Hey sorry I haven't updated...there appear to be about 20 fry swimming near the top regularly, about 15 or so that are fine but need to rest, and I can't seem to find the rest, they hide in or around the sponge filter. My camera battery is dead and I can't seem to find the charger but once I do I'll update with some two week photos.


Also thanks for the input everyone! I added about 2 tsp to the whole tank which is at about 8 gallons and that seemed to help.

I'm glad you posted. I was beginning to worry that your fry disappeared like mine did. I'll try to be patient for those 2 week fry pictures ;)
