YOU NEED AN AIR PUMP...they put oxygen in to the water and with out it the oxygen levels in your tank will be very low...this could be the reason they are dying...:):):)

good luck with fry im onto my 3 drop in 7 months :)

You would need a filter that has a "waterfall" action. It's always a good idea to have an airpump too just incase. Plus bubble are pretty.

I think that your water conditions plus the lack of oxygen is what killed your fish. I highly reccomend investing in a API liquid kit.
