Mystery Fish: Baby Guppy?

Post by Shell on Fri Jul 25, 2014 2:25 pm

We have an unexpected addition here that came in with some cories. I sent an email to the person who owned these fish originally, and she said that it could be a baby guppy, but that there were several other types of fish breeding in her tank, so she could not be certain. I took two pics with the iPhone, so maybe not clear enough to confirm if it is a baby guppy. Plus, this little guy is very skittish, so it is hard to get a good pic. If these pics are not clear enough, I will try to get better shots with my camera!

Looks clear enough to me,

It's obviously a fish, I can tell because it's under water and has fins.

Sorry in a smart **** mood. Smile

Thank you Orion11, can't wait to see what he or she grows "up to be"! Guppy or endler?!

And, um, oooohhh my, Steve...thanks for your input!  Laughing

I got a few more pics - still not good and clear, but better than the previous ones!

Awesome - I am hoping this is the case! I'm thinking she will do okay with Callie, our lone panda cory, for now!
