I'm worried I killed a bunch of fry from this last batch. I was tearing down my 20 gallon to set up my 30 in it's place and switch my fish over. I had emptied almost all of the water so it could be moved, had the new tank up and with the fish all in it when I moved to the 20. I started scooping out gravel and putting it in a bowl. Was almost done when I saw a single fry swimming around in the 3/4 inch of water. i looked all through the rest of the water and went through as much of the gravel in the bowel as I good and didn't see anything. I wonder of many I sucked up without realizing. Turns out momma dropped the babies and I hadn't even realized.
