My daffodils had their first batch of fry about 3 weeks ago. There is 10 fry from that batch and they are about a half an inch long now. I just noticed some new fry 2 days ago. I only have seen 4-5 of the new fry.

Is it normal for there to be to be so few fry? They are in a 20 gallon (HIGH) tank with a few danios/guppies (which know better than to leave the top 2 inches of the tank :wink: ), so I don't think anything is eating them, except maybe the parents.

I think their first few batches are around 15-20 eggs (mine laid eggs 2 times but kept eating it all) i have only spotted around 20eggs and the parents started eating after 2-3 days so i havent had success with fry yet. the number of egg will increase while they grow bigger.

I had daffodils a long time ago and they were awesome fish. i never had so few in a spawn but mine were also in a much bigger tank and with no other fish. i never saw them eat any of the fry or eggs.
