How do you properly care for killifish fries?

I bought 50 Blue fin notho eggs, 25 of em hatches and died during water changes and only 1 survives.

Sounds like you might of had a bad batch. Temperature of the water should be around 68° and 75° F. 6.6 to 7.2 is the ph you wanna keep around. Feed baby brine shrimp for the first 2-3 weeks, like hatch the brine shrimp yourself so there newly hatch brine! Also microworms will work good as well! 3 main factors for fry is, good water conditions, keep them alone and proper diet!

Also considering you say they died from water change could be because you don't wanna do large water changes with fry the change of so much water effect fry alot more then smaller ones... could of changed the chemistry of your water to fast for them to adapt

How big should the tank be for fries and how do you syphon without sucking them up?

I keep my fry in a 5 gallon until they ready to move to the 10 gallon! Its tricky but use your smallest syphon so it don't pull as hard and just be careful!
