I was just taking some pics of my tank and I noticed a few tiny, tiny fish-looking things. I assume these are baby fish....I could tell that they have eyes and a fish-like shape. I assume they have no chance in my tank as the danios couldn't care less about their fry. What do you think?

Were you able to get any of the pictures of them to come out?

hehe, near impossible to catch, almost impossible to even see! I don't have another tank at the moment since I am currently quarantining 4 leapoard danios....I thought that one or two of my zebras were preg but then I thought maybe they were just stuffed with shrimp. Who knows. This might be a dumb question but I just started feeding frozen brine shrimp and frozen mosquito larvae....it wouldnt possible be anything like that, right?

Josh, your fry are danios. Danios are actually the easiest cyprinids to breed. Expect to see more fry soon.:)
Danios do not care about your water conditions and other special requirements unlike other fish do. They will just spawn prolifically.

Danios don't get pregnant. They are egg layers and are usually ripe with eggs even when bought from a shop. Your food will not matter when it comes to making fish spawn. No matter what food you give them, they will obviously still spawn a lot but the survival rate is quite low in a community tank unless the tank is heavily-planted.

bri - I assume the shrimp you saw were clearly not alive, right? the things I saw were clearly alive and would move whenever i tried to get a pic of em!

Blue, what do you think are the chances of any of the fry surviving without my intervention? Keep in mind my 90gal is stocked very low - 5 danios, 16 shrimp, 1 pleco....
