2/28/15 (Saturday) - There haven't been many deaths until today. This morning I found about 20 fry (too many) or more at the bottom of the tank tangled in decaying plants or fuzzy stuff growing over them. I have been siphoning everyday because I think I may have overfed with micro worms, but they've only started dying last night/this morning. I can't tell if they are even eating the worms, like I usually can with other spawns. There are many microorganisms in the tank so they might be eating those and letting the worms rot at the bottom. Or they could be starving, which may be why many are dying. I can hatch BBS if I want, but if even micro worms are too big, then I can't imagine them eating it.

Also, do you count how old the fry are from when the eggs are fertilized, when the eggs hatch, or when they start free swimming?

A lot of them are having trouble swimming. They swim up, then slowly land vertically or sideways and don't move for a while... I added a ramshorn snail and started a BBS hatchery.

Angry

Nobody wants to help? Well almost all of them died, and I still don't know why. I did everything the same as last time besides doing more water changes. They didn't seem to mind them until today and yesterday. There are probably only 5 healthy ones left and the rest are dead or dying. I'm going to try and transfer the healthy ones to a different tank, hopefully they'll survive..

No need to get offensive. If people knew how to help you I'm sure they would've said something. It is most likely just a die off, they happen frequently (especially in fancier fish, from my research) and there is little you can do. Although these ones look a little young to be doing water changes... The only thing you can do for babies is keep the water warm and unchanging.

Oh haha, I didn't mean to sound rude, I was just joking. Thanks for the suggestion

Those macro shots look so cool. Out of curiosity, when did you take the male out?

Definitely dont do water change for the first week after they are free swimming. They probably died from shock, when you water changed. Did you match the water temperature? did you drip the water in?

What I do is, i put a 24 quart container on top of the tank. I fill it with water. Then i get a airline tube and put one end in the container and start suction so water go from the container to the tank. I put an airline control valve on the other end and set it to drip 1 drop second. Add about 1 gallon of new water a day until the tank is full.

about a week after the tank is full do water change. Set up a drip kind of like before, but instead with the water dripping out of the tank into a bucket. Tape the airline tub so that it is only 1/3 in the tank. Drip 1/3 of the water out during the day, then drip it back at night. I drip out when i'm at work and drip in during the evening. =D
