Moved to FW and Brackish- breeding. Please start only one thread per topic, and please post it in the appropriate forum.

They are egg layers. If you find babies, separate them and feed them.

Are you sure it is your flying foxes that bred? What are your other tank inhabitants?

What else is in the tank? That doesn't look like a flying fox at all.

Did that come from an egg? Sure looks like a live bearer to me. It looks pretty large to have just come out of an egg. What else is in the tank? You still haven't answered that question.

Four red platys but purchased after finding the fry.
Two silver mollys also purchased after the find.
One golden pleco
One gourami

I'm guessing platy or molly, could have been a small newborn fry when they netted your other fish. Might not have seen it in the bag even.

I suppose time will tell.

Still looks like a molly/guppy/platy fry to me. Give it a month and you'll be able to tell for sure.

Definitely not a flying fox. I agree with molly/guppy/platy. Fry occasionally come in with plants as well, so if you have any plants that could be a possibility.

I know it's been said but it's a guppy/platy/Molly fry I am almost 100% sure it's not a flying fox none of the characteristics match the flying fox
The picture is a fox fry you can pretty much see the black strip from hatching plus the long body and shape of the head

A flying fox and a silver flying fox are totally different species just to let you know and silver flying fox's do not have the black strip at all!

Not to mention fins, eyes, and general appearance.

Another vote for a livebearer of some sort. I'd say platy most likely.
