    I was doing a water change in my tank and I noticed that there were a few small fish swimming around the bottom of the tank. I couldn't figure out what they were and I've now been watching them for a few days. They've grown quite a lot since I first noticed them and i still cant figure it out. I attached a picture of them.

    Need more info. What species do you have in the tank? They are probably fry from your adult fish.

    Heterandia formosa? Maybe, I can’t see them well.

    They are some sort of Killifish fry. Could be baby Mummichogs.

    They showed up in my 30 gallon shrimp tank. Before it made it my shrimp tank I did have a lot of killifish that are wild in my area in the tank. I had 6 golden top minnows, 2 banded killifish, 3 mummichogs, 4 blue fin killifish, and 6 Heterandia formosa. I thought at first that maybe they were least killifish but after watching them for awhile they are now double the size of the killifish and didn't look anything like it. They typically stay at the bottom and just lay on the rocks and substrate. Occasionally they will swim around the open area of the tank.
