Get a a picture of it if you can, what kind of fish are you stocked with in that tank?

Probably a Platy baby.

Well the platy is most likely, but cory could be possible. Allot of fry can survive off the mulm (like collecting under your ornaments)for quite a while, then move straight into crushed flakes.

Congrats on the new baby fish friends.

You will probably need to focus on controlling your platy population if these ones survive. I have seen other threads with that info. The angelfish will definitely help that.
