Thread: puzzled...

    Ok, so I had stripped a batch of approximately 75 fry from my peacocks(2 mothers). Everything seemed fine, this is not my first rode when it comes to stripping and such. HOWEVER, I had set up a tote (15g approx.) With the typical equipment. But, after about 8 hours half the fry had died. The rest are completely healthy and still fine. The only thing I can think was the pH difference from the main tank to the tote. I usually use crushed coral substrates and such to raise pH in fry tanks, but didn't with this one. Is there anything else I could have done wrong? I already raised up a batch of Pseudotropheus fry in the tote so it wasn't ammonia shock from a cycle. I also did a 100% waterchange before stripping the new batch. Any ideas would be welcomed as I don't plan on repeating this, I was too bummed when my fry started dieing.
    Coastie-to-be... hopefully.

    why not get a breeding net and let the fry out into the net right in the main tank for awhile?

    That's actually a really good idea. I feel dumb for not having thought of it LOL :p
