I have about 30-2 1/2 week old swordtail fry. I am looking for info on what to expect and best way to care for them and also I have been losing about 2 a day. Is this normal or is something wrong...I have been able to guess how many will die by their behavior the previous day ie not much movement and laying at bottom of breeder net. Even though they all look to be very active -the next day 1 or 2 more will appear at bottom. I have all of them still in net, don't know if this is too many for net and should they be divided. As I said they all are in breeder net in a 20 gallon tank. I have been feeding them about 4 times a day (flakes made into powder) I did just read I should skim water in net since filter doesn't work too well through mesh net. I did this today. Any help and advice will be appreciated. The whole tank itself is only 3 1/2 weeks old. Bought tank for sons room and surprise!! @ 40 swordtail fry the following week. When I was told female would have more in about a month she went back to store.
