Sorry for the bad news :(

I have had this with my L260 fry. Very shy feeders and won't look for food unless it is dropped right in front of them. I lost 50% of them, they were all skinny..... Now I powder feed them with a seringe. No casualties anymore :)
Hope you don't loose any more.

Hi sorry about losing the zeb .
Its probably not your fault it just happens some times and annoying.
I usually keep my wrigglers in the fry saver for up to 8 weeks just to make sure they are doing well before out in a bigger tank where it can be harder to keep an eye on them.

Best of luck with the rest. 8)

Caution is a most valuable asset in fish keeping, especially if you are the fish.
