Think I still have seven at this point. They are hard to find on the black sand.

Okay I'm getting too frustrated so I'm moving the parents and a plant back into the breeding tank. See if that makes a difference. I need something to keep the BB alive anyway. At this point I think I only have three of the fry left, must be sucking them up during water changes.

Not enough. Still losing them. They Don't seem to be eating. Only a dozen or so are thriving. Next batch gonna need live food. The decapsulated stuff just doesn't cut it.

I can send microworm starter culture for $5 shipped to anyone stateside. I'm sure they'd live through international shipping but I don't know how much that'd cost.

To leave them or not to leave them in community tank with parents. That's is the question. I'm happy to hatch them out and did great with last batch but parents can't really feed them any better than I can't I guess!
