Thanks. Its hard to identify. Has a platy shape but my guppy was acting pregnant the day before I found this fry swimming around in my community tank.

Hmmm- I'd say platy. I've never seen a guppy with such a bright yellow body. The two are in a different genus so it's highly unlikely to be a cross.

I have never seen guppy fry of that color; usually they are grey. I would guess platy.

I agree with the OP! It's a Platy - and judging by his bright coloration, looks like he's been hiding in there for a while!!! Congratulations on the baby!

And it's fairly big. That is not a newborn for sure! It's been hiding for awhile and finally must have had the courage to come out into the open. When you say survived did you loose some Platys?
