hey,i just set up my new 10 gal. today and put 4 fish in it(one being a live bearrer platty)....soo about an hour after i put the fish in i come by and see the tank and see my pregnant platty slightly floating in mid water.
after seeing that i transported it to the tank it started off in,in a floating fry trap. she just died. poor little fries:(
what happened wrong?

I must say it's sort of weird that in your information you put 10 as your experience level :confused:

I see that you have another 35gal tank? So you must know about cycling the tank.

A cycle issue after one hour? That seems very unlikely to me. Four fish in a new 10 gallon, with two dying within an hour says either poisoning of some sort, shock from careless transfer or spending too long in the bag before release, or lousy stock coming from the fish store.
