Betta or Guppy fry?

Well, I know that stores sell guppies as feeder fish. I saved 3 from the fate of being devoured by my much larger fish in the 75 gallon tank. A day after removing them, they acted like Betta's, spending time at the surface, tail-slapping each other and chasing.

My question is; is it possible to have Culled betta fry by accident? If anyone needs an image, I can get one.

This is them. They act exactly adult betta's. They'll go up for air, spit little tiny bubbles out, and just act like mini adult betta's. I honestly am stumped. So, I figured I'd ask.

Thanks lot, guys. If they grow up to be like the adults posted in your 2nd post, would it be a good tank mate for a male CT male?

The first is an endler, the second are mosquito fish (I think). Both are generally peaceful tank mates, endlers for sure.. Don't know if anyone keeps betta with mosquito fish. They may need a larger tank ifthey are active.. Endlers are often crossbred with guppies so that could be a possibility!

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

They look a lot like the 2nd pic, so, I think they are that one. They are in the tiny tank, which has more room than the temp-holding cup I originally had for them. So, they have enough room to swim around, but. They usually stay near each other at all times. Except one, who tail-slaps like a betta and chases.
