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?
it could be from either because guppys and endlers can store sperm....so you will just have to see when it grows up as to what it is :):):)
at a guess id say the fry just hitched a ride to its new home in the net without you realising
The fry is an Endler fry! You know why? I can see "through" the mother Endler where her gravid spot is, which I assume means she gave birth! I noticed this when I spent time after work to watch my fish when she swam near the light and I could see "through" her. I wonder what sex this fry will be...
