Can you use the TEMPLATE to help with a diagnosis. If you can give as much detail as possible and possibly add photos would be a great help.

To me it looks like some form of bacterial infection, you could try a combination of PimaFix & MelaFix (I think it's available in Australia) if you can not get them try a broad spectrum anti-bacterial.

You said your tank has a bare bottom apart from a little gravel, over a period of time you can get a bacterial growth on a bare bottom tank that is highly toxic, does the bottom of the tank feel slimy in anyway Question.

Did you clean the filter wool before or after the fry died Question

I would highly suggest some Pimafix, great stuff that. Most pet shops have it (jim.and, pimafix/melafix are available in australia :sunny: ). Big blue bottle. It does a good job on fixing infections and it doesn't harm your biological filter. Froths the water up a little but that goes away after a short while.

I wish you all the best, hopefully he'll recover and act as if this never happened.
