fry update + even more eggs

Recommended Posts

The first round of fry there are 12 left I only lost two after they hit 4 days old. As of yesterday they're one week old. The second round hatched Tuesday and I fed them for the first time just now. There are five of them. The third round I collected out of the tank yesterday evening and there are 12 more eggs with newly developed eyes in them.

Round one:

In the round two photos, the water isn't green its actually light blue from the meth blue but the way the light reflected it looks green. Also one from the first round of fry doesn't swim right. It swims kind of upside down and has a hard time staying right side up, any idea why this is? It seems to be doing ok it gets food and can swim to the surface. It's just kind of loopy when it swims.

The photos go from youngest to oldest. There are about 4 bigger ones and about 12 babies. Everyone seems to be doing good
