'fraid not guys! false alarm. no idea what they were, but suspect they arrived with the live daphnia. only source of mystery critters I can think of. but have 3 guppy fry, so they'll give me practice. if I can keep them alive and well, I'll feel more confident when if/when I do get galaxy babies. they still have no libido!! there's no action at all that i've seen anyway :. they just hide in the plants :!
