Luckiest fry ever!

So a while ago I bred my bettas but I saw no eggs drop so I simply removed the female... About two weeks later (now) I decided I was going to change their breeding tank so I put some of their old water in the tank and then put some new water. On my last bucket I noticed a fry swim to the top... Only one! But it doesn't look like normal Betta fry. It has bright orange at the top and clear at the bottom. I will try to get a picture but it is EXTREMELY small

Haha yeah but they spawed two weeks ago! And most of them were free swimming.
I already had some old liquid fry food from my first batch so that's what I'm going to give them until they're big enough for bbs

Well, congrats on the surprise fry! Fry are pretty good about finding tiny stuff in the water. I guess they found something to eat.
