not looking good for my fry :(
 
well after i really had a good look in the fry tank i saw that around 6 fry had bent backs ....almost like the nike logo the tick.......but i dont know what to do should i just put them in with the adults or what bu the others are fine i have already put about 4 in with the adults because they had the same problem....all the others that i can see are perfectly shaped and are fine ????...help

That sucks man, I'm not sure what would cause so many deformities..how big are they so far? It might sound a bit harsh, but you could let them get eaten and hope for a better group next time.

i have already taken that step...i moved all the fry into a breeder net and i counted 30 and i have put 10 healthy 1ns in the big tank coz there big enough...making it 40 and iv added 9 smaller 1nz...around 3/4 of a cm they have bent backs and today 3 have gone wich to me is awful but because im planning on breeding i just carnt have those fry reaching adulthood.... :):):)

Well at least now you have first hand knowledge as to why they have so many young! Many die so some can live :)
