So I have yet ANOTHER mystery hitchhiker fry, and I'm looking for an ID.
I can't get a pic of the little bugger, he's too small and my camera is too sucky.
Here's my best attempt at a description:
He came from an egg that came on some plants. (I plan to make a trip to the LFS to see if they remember what fish were in the tank the plants came from.) He definitely has RED
eyes, really RED
! He is other wise clear colored at this point, no markings or color yet. His body is elongated and tubular (i.e. NOT laterally compressed), has a homocercal/forked type caudal fin, and has a dorsal fin that is set back (caudally) on the body like some surface dwellers. There's no discernible adipose fin, but he is really small still and hard to see. He hangs out near the surface. He seems weirdly chill little guy, but that may or may not mean anything.
So... Sound like any fish you're familiar with?
Thanks for reading, and a special thanks for any guesses you may have!
