I found fry!

Wasnít trying to breed anything but just saw some fry swimming around in the tank. Problem is, I donít know what they are. Guppies or Zebra danios?

Thereís just two. Did the rest get eaten? The danios were attacking them, so I saved them into a net and floated them into a corner temporarily. I have a 2 gallon that I can get ready by tomorrow after transferring its fish to his permanent home. I really donít have any other option because my other tanks have bettas, silver tip tetras, and red eye tetras.

Will they be ok in the floating net until tomorrow? What else do I need to do? Clearly I wasnít planning for this.

Yes, otherwise they'd have been snacks.

You do what you can and get the other set up soon. Look for more fry, since the big fish will be.

There are fry net /breeder boxes. Just beware there is less flow through them, and you can get ammonia spike in the water in the breeder net. So if you use one, it is good to rinse out the net after feeding and even a couple times a day with a cup or 2 of tank water.

Hikari makes a food for baby fish called First Bites. You can find it from a good lfs or if not there, usually available at the big box stores.

So tiny and the top view, not yet. If you have blonde color Guppies, maybe them, but really no idea.

I found fry!

I googled.


Result: inconclusive. 🤣 but I am leaning toward guppy because of the tail.

Looks similar, lol. The positive is you'll likely get more Guppy fry, they are prolific and you can save them or leave them as nature food.
