hrutan Awww, I am so sad to hear that, Lilnaugrim. How heartbreaking for you.

lilnaugrim I'm so sorry guys--mostly I'm very sorry to Lucillia for letting you down. None of the fry survived. I don't think I did enough larger water changes to begin with and the ammonia just built up and burnt them. At least that's what I feel happened. When tested it only came up to .25-.50 ppm ammonia but I know that is deadly to fry. I was even using Prime to help combat it through the day but it didn't work in the end.

I want to try my HMPK pair and though it saddened me to see all the dead fry, at least I know now and hopefully can correct the mistake in the future.

Real sorry for those who wanted the fry :-/

lilnaugrim Yeah, I know about that, it would be on top of their head though. This is where his gills are, more like ammonia burns which I'm not putting past. I haven't actually checked the parameters of the tank though.

Alaura123 I heard that if there are red dots on their heads, or red marble like markings, then that means they could have some sort of infection, forget what its called, but I saw it happen with another spawn.

lilnaugrim I don't really know what's going on with the fry, maybe I haven't done enough water changes or something? But, well I haven't officially counted or anything but I know my numbers have severely decreased from the original 80-90 fry. Some death is always natural but too much and it raises red flags :-/

Most of the reason I wanted to get this spawn done earlier in the summer was because of this last week, Band Camp with a spawn on top of it is not fun. Most of the nights I had to stay up late to do a small change on the tank, It was only about a gallon a night or so but I guess it just wasn't enough. I still have plenty of fry but it's really difficult to tell between the dead fry and the ones still alive unless I see them breathing >.<

But I just did a 40% water change, I would have done more if my arm wasn't killing from holding up my ridiculously heavy Tenor all week lol. But the water is dripping in currently as I type. I did get some pictures for your viewing pleasure:

Sorry this one is blurry but they've got tails! They got them last week though lol

This is one of my biggest fry and he just sort of bumbles around the tank. However that red on him is worrying me, he just chills on top so I'm worried about him, there is another that is close in size to him too.

That same fry later in the day, a smaller one behind him

Fry was eating :)
