It's guppy fry right? I wouldn't worry about every 3 days, guppys almost pop out fry that often anyways haha. (not really but very often)

Even if ya lose 7 fry there will be 17 more to replace them in a few weeks.

I think we've given you all the possible solutions. Automatic feeders aren't that expensive, especially if you take the 10 gal back. Plus its true that even if you lose these fry, it won't take long for you to have gobs more.

Yeah I would take the 10 gallon back.....

And just to clarify, chlorine might disappear from the water after a day, but from what I understand it takes weeks for chloramine and other heavy metals to come out. So yes, water conditioner is a must.

I believe Tetra AquaSafe also removes chloramine and heavy metals.

What method of cycling did you use? I find it hard to believe that your tank cycled in 3 days. Usually it takes a few weeks.

I took filter media, plants, and a filter cartridge. I let them sit in the tank for three days, and on the third or forth day I added fish. It has been 18 days since then, and not one single fatality.
