I need some help!

I have my Least Darters spawning. Aroud the middle of May they began to hatch. I put the in gren water and also feed them APR. after a few days I started putting Brine shrimp napali. I whet camping for four days on Memorial day weekend and when I got home they all had died. I thought they starved. May 30 more hatched out Same as above last night I could see Brine shrimp in some of their bellies. This morning all dead. I'm still getting eggs so I have more chances.

Some of my thoughts

The salt in brine shrimp can kill baby cory cats maybe thats whats happening with the least dartes.

Im going to try not using green water so I can easly see whats going on and feed micro worms instead of brine shrimp.

Any ideas lot of great breeders out there what do you think?
