Default Dead tadpole?

Hi guys. I have two azureus eggs that have been growing nicely. But when I checked on them this morning, one looks great and the other looks dead. What are your thoughts?

Odd. I'd leave them and see how it goes. The one certainly looks pale which usually isn't a good sign.

Ok, thanks! Do you think I should separate them? If the one is bad, could it harm the healthy one?

I would leave it for now. If you start to see the surrounding sac start to mold over you can remove it then.

Egg failure is often caused by a vitamin A deficiency.

Mine usually slowly starts going cloudy, and you can kinda see the tadpole disintegrate slowly too. But this should happen together to know that it's dead, because if the sac is still clear and the gills is disappearing then it can mean that it's alive and just absorbing the gills.

As others have said, leave for a few days as you'll know then. They don't move often so don't assume they're dead right away.
