My First Fry!

    So I noticed a teeny tiny grey fry at the bottom of my 55gal community tank just now. I've only seen two at the same time so far, but there is two 3-3.5" three spot gourami in there so I wouldn't be surprised if they're the only two left.

    I noticed that one of the fry I was able to keep any eye on for awhile kept jamming itself down in the crevices of the gravel, it looks like it gets stuck and then after I minute or so it wiggles its way back out. It repeated this behavior a few times while I watched. Is this something fry usually do?

    Their either mollies or platies, I can't tell because all the fish I thought looked pregnant still look pregnant.

    Maybe the fry gers lodged in between the gravel while trying to hide? Or maybe it's not that good of a swimmer. Every batch of fry has a runt/weakling.

    Could be, it was the area of the tank underneath the filter so the current is kind of strong there.
