I agree with all the above posts.

Unfortunately if you purchased them from one of the bigger pet/co/smart stores the simple fact that they buy thousands of them at a time for pennies and have no real care to take the proper steps to assure a healthy fish to the consumer there is nothing you can do to help the situation.

Really, the best advice I can give someone buying from the above mentioned retailers is just to try to buy them when they are on sale and buy 2-3 x's as many as you really want because its likely if you do that you MAY end up with the actual amount you want that are healthy after two weeks.
