Right this little guy in TINY and definitely a male as it has a rather large gonopodium for his size lol.

He is about 1cm to 1.5cm long max, I;m guessing he is fully grown as he has been in a tank for a couple of months now and not grown. He is totally colourless kinda like a female endlers (I have a breeding tank of these) but possibly a little more see through than a female endler.

I would add a picture but kind of hard to get a picture of a see through teeny tiny fish. I will have another go at getting a picture after Saturday when he and his tank comes to live with me! The guy in the LFS knows I love the little fishy so seems now he is mine. He arrived at the LFS in a bag of other fish on their delivery and non of us are really sure what the fish is as he is so small.

Without a pic it's almost impossible to ID a fish. Sorry

Looks kind of like Giradinus falcatus

I've had these and they are really cool. Their common name is Cuban ditch fish
Let us know

It looks to me like an Endler, or an Endler-guppy cross.
I'm pretty sure it's not an Endler as I have a tank full of Endlers and it looks a total different fish

Your welcome! The dead giveaway is the gonopodium size and shape. The stay tiny fish probably an inch at the most. Females and males are both pretty colorless but really interesting to watch.
The one you have is just a baby.

I'm now thinking this stowaway may only be a couple of months old so may grow a little lol, at the moment he makes my Endler males look HUGE
