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.
Finally reached 6 tanks... oh god, this addiction is getting serious. 75g mbuna tank, 65g gold severum, 55g OB peacock breeding colony, 30g(36x18) growout, 20 long Dwarf Alto's, 10g fry tank.
If I die young bury me in... An 8x2x2 with versa tops and a large sump for adequate filtration;)
