Fish Fry ID (I found them as eggs and took them in and hatched them, they just hatched a day or two ago.)

Not sure what these are, my best guess was some type of catfish. HELP ( I found them in the wild in slightly brackish water.)

It is REALLY hard to say at that point. They re not yet developed at all. I would start thinking about fish that have elongated bodies though. The proportions from head to body seems a little long to me. Mudskippers are elongated.

Lol missed the text from the OP. Slightly brackish...Hmmm....Wild caught...where? what region? cold water? warm water? Were the eggs stuck to a rock or something or were they scattered?

I just did some more research. I’m pretty sure they’re Common Carp

Well...I would try to keep their tank parameters as close to their natural parameters as possible and find out....That is really exciting though.

They were found on the side of my wooden dock on moss underwater, I just did some more research, and I think they’re Common Carp

That's very possible. Carp do spawn like that, in matted vegetation - Even if they are that's still pretty neat.
