| || | Fry Mystery over the Valentines Day weekend...?
As I said in my other thread that I had guppy fry on the weekend. To me it was my fish's valentines day gift to me! I caught the fry and put them seperate from the parents. I did a water change afterwards because I was due for one, cleaned excess floating debris (from the plants) with a net, and then cleaned my other tanks the same way. I started off with my Guppy tank because I wanted nice cleaner water for the new fry. On monday I find a fry the same size as the other in another tank! One single fry! In this tank I have 1 female Endler with 3 Panda Corys, the male Endler of the tank passed away a few weeks back.
So my mystery or my question really is... does this fry belong to the Guppies or the Endler? I had used the same net the whole day I seperated the fry and cleaned the tanks. Could the fry have gotten caught on the net and tranferred to another tank? More precisely into the second tank I cleaned that day. But on the other hand this fry was found two day after. Only time will tell.... (unless the lone fry turns out to be female making identification a whole lot harder).
This is my mystery. What are your thoughts?
