Hi there,

I stripped my first ever fish yesterday and was really pleased my fry box with approx 15 great little electric yellow fry. Today there are only 8 and two appear to be dead. What is going on? How have they been eaten through the slits!?

Yours concerned

Ian

Most likey that is whats happening. I have a few separate 10g tanks setup for fry and put them in that in a breeder box.

Many people have said that this very thing has happened to them so I went out and got these tanks just for this purpose. You could try wrapping the box in a netting or something so the adults cant get to the slits. Or build a another slightly larger box out of that plastic canvas to create a "buffer zone" so to speak. So you will have your floaitng box within a box.
