Silver Surprise

I am to believe my Silver Molly "Charger" delivered surprise fry last night!
I thought it was another Molly birthing until I realized other one isn't slimming down and no more babies are emerging... Also, these babies are very light silver/white...
There are 11 in total I was able to save...

They are so sweet when small. Fingers crossed you don't have any problems with these batches

Haha that's good that you increased your size of your finding of frys! Are the month old fry smaller?

Fed these little ones their first meal. Leave it to mollies who have never seen food of any kind before to swim up and start eating right away without hesitation!

Was sitting there watching and a few of them were bickering and chasing each other... One would bump the other and chase and then the other one would shimmy "no no" disapproval for a second.
These guys have personalities already! I've never seen this before... Usually they act like little ding dongs banging into the wall swimming and it takes a bit to figure out what food is...
These guys seem to gave graduated from Harvard already!
