 Could  somebody  tell  me  for  certain  if  methylene  blue  is  harmful  to  tetra  fry.  Had  removed  methylene  blue  in  the  morning  after  the  eggs  hatch  but  by  evening  fungus  is  making  it's  way  back  into  the  fry  tank.  So  want  to  know  if  i  leave  methylene  blue  as  it  was  in  the  tank  would  it  harm  the  fry.
 
 Thanks  in  advance.

 Methylene  Blue  or  any  mild  additives  can  harm  your  fry.
 Slight  change  in  water  parameters  can  affect  Fry's  resulting  to  unwanted  loss.
 They  need  to  be  sparingly  used  for  adult  fishes  but  for  Fry's  it  can  be  fatal.

 Vinod,
      Isn't  Methylene  Blue  used  to  keep  the  eggs  from  catching  fungus  during  hatching  ?!  So,  assuming  that  all  egg  do  not  hatch  at  the  same  time,  you  would  usually  have  hatched  fry  (  along  with  the  yet  unhatched  eggs  )  in  a  tank  with  Methylene  Blue  solution.  So  would  they  not  be  harmed.  If  it  was  the  case  then  why  would  breeders  suggest  and  use  Methyelene  Blue  in  most  of  they  hatching  tanks  ?!  Have  you  had  any  experiences  with  using  it  in  Fry  tanks  ?!  Pls  share  some   info  on  its  effects  on  Fry.
 
 Regards
 Prabhu

 I  have  had  Fry's  of  Green  Terrors,  Jaguars  ,  Jewels  ,  Texas  and  Electric  Blue  Haps.  Leaving  the  Haps  I  never  had  an  issue  of  fungus.
 So  I  never  had  a  chance  of  using  the  same  for  any  of  my  multiple  batches.
 Though  I  read  that  ,  they  are  safe  for  Fry's  and  eggs.  Still  I  am  not  assured  that  they  are  safe  for  Fry's  or  eggs.

 I  never  done  breeding  of  egg  layers  but  for  livebearers  I  had  used  methylene  blue  for  my  fries  before.
 
 I  diluted  the  solution  as  much  I  can  and  that  not  only  solves  my  problem  of  itch  /  fungus  but  also  did  not  create  any  harm  to  my  fish.
 
 Hope  this  helps.

 Even  I  have  seen  use  of  methylene  blue  by  breeders  for  lamp  eye  tetra  eggs.
