    With most batches of fry, some don't survive (as in nature) because they are not as strong or healthy.

    With white spots it could be ich. Photos or description of the white dot could help. Was it fuzzy/fluffy or smooth?

    Hopefully someone else will know. It could be a fungus but I have never experienced it.

    Just be careful with treatments, as fry can usually not handle the full adult dosage of medicine.

    How long after death is the white ball appearing? And in relation to the size of the fry, about how big is the ball?
