Oscar fry just survive for 1 week only...
I analysed water quality & find out this:
pH:8.44
Hardness:196
Alkalinity:234
I know the pH is high...But exactly I don't know what to do & how to reduce the pH.
Someone please tell me what to do to correct water quality parameters..
Or is there any other reason that the fry are dying?

welcome to the community....

first of all, having fries or wigglers is already a good accomplishment....
it make you so sure that you have a pair...
now, what you need to do is to balance the water parameters
and induce spawning again... lowering the ph ... you need something like
KETAPANG Leaves or peat.....
you need to know also the level of ammonia, nitrite and nitrate...
any trace of ammonia is very fatal to all fries...

Thank you sir for your reply...Next I am going do what u have said...
But just now only my fishes have recovered from argulus infection....Some fishes are still having hole in the head disease.....
May these kind of infections will affect the egg by contact with the parents while breeding?
Does this has any connection with the fry mortality or it is still the water quality parameters?
Actually I keep the eggs separately in another place with aerator ..
Please give me answer

OUCH! that is bad... whenever fish suffered HITH (hole in the head) is is always associated with bad water condition...
having said that,... fries will never survive in the same condition!

as i have said... try to make the water in good condition, they will spawn again and hopefully,
fries will survive!
