Thanks folks. I have some cautiously good news to report. I didn't find any more dead ones this morning (I was half-expecting to find them all dead or something). Only a couple are just laying at the bottom now. I looked at a few under the magnifying glass again, and I only found one with spots. So, hopefully, fingers crossed, the treatment is starting to work...

Well, the spots all came back after I posted...and I found 6 dead fry. I actually managed to find a LFS that had copper in stock yesterday morning. So, I did a water change (to get out some of the other medicine) and added the copper. I saw a big improvement right away. The fry are back to their normal activity level, and some sickly ones who were laying at the bottom even went back to normal. And the best part - none of the survivors appear to have any spots.

I have some photos of the fish today that I'll post soon. Some of the bigger ones are getting tails.

Hi! Unfortunately, the spawn didn't survive. They were extremely stunted, and they never really grew past the 3-4 week mark. Most of them also didn't ever grow fins. I suspect that it was a combination of the velvet and the combination of medicines that I used to try to save them. I eventually only had about 5 left, all about 1/4 inch in size at 2 1/2 months old. I ended up feeding them to my sorority girls.

I'm not sure if I'll give breeding another go. I might consider it over the summer. Honor has gone mostly blind from eye scaling at this point, so I'd probably use a different male. Right now, I'm mostly focused on my two other tank projects. Sorry to disappoint.

On a cheerier note, all my other fish are doing very well. Besides a guppy, some melty plants, and one betta, I haven't had any disease, deaths, or aggression.
