Just noticed this guy stuck onto the side of my tank. He is very very small and appears to be dark in colour. It does look something like a fry but I'm not convinced. It also looks to have 2 black lines running down its body from head to tail. It does appear to have a tail that it uses like a fish but its ability to grip onto the sides of the tank has me questioning if its a fish. Currently in the tank are mollies, platties, guppies, and zebra danios. A platy and guppie have recently given birth but their babies are much much bigger than this little creature. 20190117_211927.jpg 15477734689532755502770518457417.jpg

Looks like a newly hatched zebra danio, though it does look pretty big unless you are zoomed in really well. Danio fry will cling to the glass and plants for a day or so after hatching.

Thanks for the input! My camera is pretty good haha I would estimate the fry is at most 2mm long. Its less than half the size of a newborn platty
