    I would like to understand why fry are dying more after BBS feeding.

    Anyway, I didn't know that fry can be attacked by flukes so early.

    I can only guess on this so please understand I am not claiming this is what happens. When fish eat they excrete ammonia from the gills as well as take up oxygen.. If there are flukes feeding on the tissue, the gills get damaged, and inflammed, open to infection. They don't work as they should.. They fish gets starved of oxygen and gets poisonesd by ammonia . When fry eat, they get excited,, swim about actively, and this makes matters worse...for some its probably too much stress and they die.
