Well the good news is that almost all of the "dead" fry have rebounded! This is why I always let DOAs sit in some clean, warm water for a while before throwing them out (well, I mean, unless they're already...moldy). I think I've ended up with 9 or 10 live ones.
Yeah they're still doing good and eating well so hoorah!
After this little let down though it's getting harder and harder to resist the auction up for three adult pairs from the man himself. $75 and counting. Whyyyyy does Pete have to have such nice fish >.> You all must stop me. I have no more christmas money left and therefor no justification to buy more shiny fish.
