[Killietalk] Notho fry not doing well
Ok, this is the second wetting of a bag of N. kafuensis 'Kayuni' ZAM
97/9. I probably got maybe 7 or so good fry(as in not bellysliders).
Now it looks like I am down to one. 3 days ago I had 5. It seemed they
always died in the morning and would be floating at the surface. No
outward signs that I've seen. This little one(prolly 5-6 days old) is
almost the size of a grain of rice.
The water has been trying to develop an oily film but I've been
removing it with waterchanges. Fry being fed with BBS. Temperature is
approx 76 degrees. This is a ten gallon tank-water depth 4 inches now
I added a tablespoon of salt to the tank just in case. I'm thinking it
could be velvet?
Insight would be appreciated.
