Day 34: Everyone is doing well except the runt 🙁 he started getting picked on so he is now separated in his own container. He is doing better than last night but it’s a 50/50 chance he will make it. No one wanted to comply for a group photo so you’ll have to settle for some individual photos.

Day 36: Moved everyone but the runt to their divided portion of the tank their fry tank was attached too. In doing so I was able to finally get an accurate count of everyone….drum roll please…. Including the runt……grand total is….51! 😱

Day 37: Unfortunately we lost the runt 🙁 he was eating just never developed like everyone else. I don’t think there was anything different we could have done. Everyone else seems to be doing fine in their new home.

Sorry for your loss. It is never easy to lose any fish.

Day 44: Tragedy has struck the fry tank 😭 saw something was wrong with one fry then next thing we know 4 more went down. Went into action and noticed the water felt warm and heater was on and not switching off; it was 82° after a water change. We unplugged the heater but unfortunately we lost 6 fry already. Everyone else seems to be ok and it’s been 5 hours since this started so 🤞🏻 Hopefully we don’t loose anymore.

Day 46: and then there were 42 😭 lost 2 more last night I’m guessing from not recovering from the heater issue. We are officially at a 25% loss which considering we had 56 to start with isn’t bad but still 😭😭😭 crossing my fingers that no one else goes down hill. 94573AD3-676F-47DD-B032-7FCC85F3CBF0.jpegBFB791AA-992E-4127-96BA-1CFAC486F5F3.jpeg
