Baby fish!

I have a 30 gallon tall aquarium with some cory cats, and some different tetras. Well, I found something tiny swimming around. I thought it was worms. I got a closer look and it was a little baby! I scooped him up quick after chasing him around. (he was in a plastic big plant he was safe for a bit)

Long story short. I found two babies in total. I keep checking the tank just in case. I have not found anymore. I had to run to the store to buy a breeder net. They are hanging safely on the side of the tank now:)


I think they might be baby glowlights, I'm not sure yet. They are still too small to tell. This is my first experience ever having baby fish.

I can almost guarantee you they are not neons. They need a specific photoperiod in order to develop which would never happen in a regular community tank. Congrats on whatever it is!

If you have two mollies, then that's probably a Molly. With livebearers, put two in a tank and watch the babies pop out lol.

I am jealous :)

My platies never have any babies... And I've got a male and female.

Hello! I'm a former fishkeeper and bettafish.com-er with a rekindled interest in the betta hobby. I don't have any bettas currently, but I'm brushing up on my fishkeeping knowledge with the intention of eventually bringing home another finned friend. ^_^

I'm just so excited. I had tanks for a long time and I've never seen this.
