Some babies – maybe four – have died in the last few days

Ammonia is 0, but pH has dropped a little, to maybe 6.2 or so, maybe because of rotting plant material (the bits I’ve put in from the other tank, and haven’t fished out yet). I’ve just added some bicarb to deal with it. As well, James is convinced that some of the larger babies are eating the smaller ones – there do seem to be fewer… but I’m not convinced.

We have unfotunately decided that the small tank is too small for a betta, which makes me a bit sad, but it would probably be too cruel. James is saying we could get another 10g tank, like the qt, or just put a betta in the community tank, but I don’t think I’m going with either of those ideas.
