DEAD

I'm sorry to say that when I woke up today I went to feed my electric yellow cichlid fry and all six were dead I think the cause was ammonia the ammonia was at 1.0

Ahhh, so sorry

Were they in their own tank? Did you just set it up for the fry?

Sorry about that.

Sorry again. If you just set it up for the fry then it wasn't cycled. The ammonia probably spiked and that's what did them in.

What I recommend is when you first notice a fish holding, run the filter you have for the fry tank in the main tank for a couple weeks. That way the bacteria will get established and you can then move the filter with the fry into the fry tank.

Good luck with the next batch!!
