New fry fount on driftwood but I think it's abit scared/stressed ?

So just had my partners parent round helping me out with a few things with the house , and my partners dad has found a baby fry hiding on the driftwood so managed to catch it and put it in the breeder box with my other 1 baby fry which will be 2weeks old tomorrow , I think it's abit scared as it's not swimming around as much as my first one but is abit smaller aswell about a couple of days to a week old I would say , I've put some food in there but also think it could be stressed as my partner done a water change last night , could this fry possibly be from my mummy guppie? As I've been told they can still drop fries even after they have delivered their first lot ? It also looks abit darker than my first guppie , could this possibly still be a guppy fry because I haven't really noticed and other fish being pregnant? ( will try to upload a pic soon )

in my experience, putting my fry in a breeder net just killed them. not sure why. if you're going to move them instead of letting the parents raise them, you'd ideally want to put them in a separate tank.

You can add a little Java Moss or Guppy Grass to the breeder box, so the fry have a place to hide. If you add a good clump of Java Moss or other easy dense plant it will give any remaining Fry in the tank a better hiding place.
