50% water changes daily isn’t ideal. Honestly any of my fry have always done well when I’ve done water changes only if the ammonia in the water starts getting too high. Once weekly water changes of about 30% usually do the trick for me and keeps the water stable with less fluctuations. Sometimes water changes can throw off the good bacteria growth and cause the fish to die off because the fluctuations were too great. However (this is only what has worked for me) someone else might think differently.
Thank you for that comment. Currently, I'm testing water changes every 3-4 days since they're older now. I'll do the 30% instead of 50%

Apr 1 (7 weeks): Hello , it’s been awhile! They’ve grown much bigger and getting really interesting. They stopped dying so I guess changing 30% every 3 days have helped! )

Remember the one with Yellow with black outline?? WOW! It’s changed a lot and it’s the biggest and only! Definitely keeping an eye on that mustard

SIDE NOTE: I realize some of them despite being 7 weeks are really small! Not hitting 1 cm yet. I will try my best otherwise culling ;-; they’ve been moved with my other batch (3 weeks old) they’re roughly the same size

Some aren't as developed yet, however most looks like First and second picture. Second picture though, leaning towards a long tail. He seemed to have longer fins and light red to him.
The last two picture-- Felt bad for some of the smaller ones. They're getting picked!

INFO and Notes:
Jarred the Blue Butterfly (I think he'll turn out butterfly) on April 18th due to aggressiveness and flares. He matured quite fast and started blowing nest right away ! LOL.

Jarred 6 of them today as you can see . Just temporary till i set up a rack for them.

Separated some of the smaller fry into another batch (The other batch only had about 20 survivors).

Total Fry from this batch : 122.

Current age : 11.5 Weeks Old

Jun 4 (Approx 28 weeks) - Many are ready to be jarred. They can't stay with the others no longer :3 Many have torn fins (minor). Hopefully they'll recover quickly. Here are some that are ready and pretty much matured!

***** Little marble. Can some one help identify if this is a female or male? I'm leaning more towards male at the moment. Thanks. Can't get it to flare yet since he/she was just transferred to be jarred. Still adjusting .

Thanks for the reply although late. The one you mentioned is the most recent picture of 7 HMP. Turned out to be male.

Most will be sold. I'm keeping one or two.
