    what other fishes do you have? this looks like a livebearer fry (wich includes, platy, molly, swordtail, guppies)

    the picture is really blurry tho.. cant make out its fins or anything.

    I knew eventually I'd have fry but just didn't seem like any was pregnant and I just got a male swordtail

    Looks like a swordtail fry, though it's hard to tell from the blurry pictures.

    It's fully colored so it's been running around for a while, it doesn't look like it was born recently.

    I also searched my tank and filters it's only one :( I'm just at a loss at what kind and who was pregnant I also did a major vacuum week ago so.... Some maybe got sucked up

    the form of the top fin makes me think of swordtail..
    mollies have round top fin
    platys have triangular top fin
    swordtails have a rectangle top fin
    (thats how i tell them apart, except for the obvious sword on the swordtail male)

    One must definitely came pregnant cause I just got my male ha

    unless you have male platies. they can hybridize with swordtails

    (i might be wrong too, might be a platy or molly)

    Uh oh i have a pair of platys so yes I have a male and I did NOT know that I also have pair mollies

    Guppies can breed with mollies too!
    But mollies cant breed with plates or swordtails

    Uhhh so.... I may have a imbreed fishy?!?!? ;0

    It could be an interbred fish, but I doubt it. Probably a platy or swordtail fry.

    They would also need to be not pregnant from the store
