The water quality could very well be the problem. When raising my angelfish fry, I changed 50% of the water daily for the first few weeks and then tapered off to every other day, then every 3rd day or so. Pristine water can make up for other minor "oops" that occur. Metabolic waste products will build up over time for sure. You could try RO water, but I'd try the significant water change routine first.
It's a pain because it clogs quickly, but I use a siphon with a small square of pantyhose (my wife's
) clipped over the intake to avoid siphoning the fry out by accident.
Once upon a time,not long before I originally got into the hobby, aquarists thought that aged water was most beneficial to fish. Now, we have learned that the more fresh the water, the better.
