definatly a fish, I would guess a rainbow, could be a tetra or rasbora also. The fins say rainbow to me though. The pic looks like it has 2 dorsal fins. A very small one followed by a much longer one. I would be fairly positive of a rainbowfish if that is the case. It doesn't have blue eyes, so that rules out a few species....

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

Time for an update......

Here's a pic I took today. There are 8 in total, but one isn't growing for some reason.

It's definitely a fish fry. It actually makes sense since a lot of fish scatter their eggs among plants when spawning.

Mikaila31, good call on the rainbow fish possibility. It will be interesting to see what it develops into!

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty

How cute :)

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Being a relative noob to the tropical fish world, my guess would be a tetra of some kind.. I have a few different species of tetras and they all have two dorsal fins. Like I said, I'm a noob and be sure to take my advice and observations with a grain of salt
