Unknown Fish Baby

I found a funny looking fry in my tank about.... 1 month and a half ago? I just released it into my tank along with three platy fry. The thing is, I have NO idea what kind of baby this is. It's not a platy, because I removed them before it was born. I found eggs stuck to my filter intake, so i'm thinking it may be a cory cat. The fish that I have in that tank are: 4 Panda Cories, 1 Skunk Cory, 1 Pepper Cory, and previously 2 Julii Cory's. I was leaning toward the 2 Julii's which I have moved to my mom's tank. However, the shape of this baby's tail isn't the same as the cories. So i have no idea what kind of baby it is. Any help identifying it would be greatly appreciated.

that's not a cory by any stretch of the imagination. That actually looks like a guppy in my opinion.

I agree. It looked like a cory right after it was born. I forgot to mention that i had neon tetras in the tank as well...... But no guppies. I'm stumped.

more than likely, the guppy hitched a ride on something you bought from the lfs. i've had fry come in on plants, had a platy fry come in a bag with some yellow labs once (of course it didnt make it in that tank very long lol)
