I have started feeding my Tiger Barb fry fresh hatched baby brine shrimp. I fed them this for the first time last night and again this morning.

They have started to die. Some are fine yet others have expired.

I am going to stop feeding them the BBS until I find out what is happening.

thanks.

Are you filtering out the egg cases?

Yes. But I suspect not completely. Will they kill fry?

If the fry eat the cases they will block them up. Maybe too much current so chasing the bbs is using more energy than they are gaining

i have had the same issues with the shells. i cant seem to get them to separate like everyone says is so easy. i get them mostly, but some dont, and i lost fry when they are small.
