Sorry to hear about your baby fishies :(

I am not an expert..... a total noobie myself .. but some more information might help the others help us (also interesting for me to learn as much as possible). IE:

1) How old were the fry? Big spawn, small spawn?
2) What did you feed them?
3) Temp of Water?

etc.... ahahah not sure what else to ask... like i said me = noobie

Your fry should be around two week old.
It only take a few hour to for the whole spawn to die out from the last time you check.
You didn't do anything with the water.


Will is the temperature still the same as yesterday.
Is the tank cover
Any cold dirfty around the tank or inside

Anything out of the ordernary happen around the house

water temp is 82, has been constant since i introduced my pair 2 weeks ago,
tank is covered
i feed them a combo of vinegar eels and micro worms
didnt do a water change today, and the room has no cold drafts
it was a small spawn, only about 100 fry

Idk them
For that many fry wipe out in a couple of hour is strange

Even with sickness the fry won't just die out in a few hours

Wait up.
When did the egg hatch
If you only introduce your pair two week ago.
Your frys not two week old then

That's puzzle me.
Did you or any of your family spray or release any chemical around the tank.

was your tank cycled? my first spawn died cause I thought I could do a spawn without cycling my tank. Maybe the load was just too much and your water parameter just crashed
