    You need to tell us more as to why the fish died. Mostly fish die due to lack of clean ammonia free water. – Graham Chiu Mar 5 '18 at 23:22
  • Different reasons- but all comes down to the ph and the water was really bad... fin rot/ cotton like fungal growth and the other two I don't know... I managed to treat the fin rot but she must of died while I was at school today..😢 She seemed ok this morning too... – user10731 Mar 6 '18 at 7:14
  • Also- is their any possibility of saving her babies( she was the one that was pregnant and died today) – user10731 Mar 6 '18 at 7:15
  • fish lay eggs. Unless there's a male to fertilize them, there's no babies. – Graham Chiu Mar 6 '18 at 7:35
