I didnt know what section to put this in...
I just found at least one, maybe 2 BABY FISH in my planted 10 gallon aquarium
Stock is as follows:
1 female betta
4 female platies
3 corydora catfish (sex unknown)
As I was laying in my bed today (reading) I looked at my tank and saw one of my platies chasing around a tiny little white thing. At first I just thought it was a particle of food or something but then I noticed it was actually darting
around. I was intrigued and went to investigate. By this time the little white thing disspeared and the platy gave up on the chase. After a few minutes of close inspection I saw a little baby fish hiding in the back corner of the tank where I have a bunch of plants. I think the baby thing is about 1/8th of an inch? What could it be? I suspect it's platy fry but my platies are all female and have had no contact with males since I prought them from the local LPS. maybe 2 months ago? None of them ever looked pregnant either...
I'm just way too excited from seeing a baby fish in my tank. Feel like a daddy now lol. I really want to catch it and protect it from the adults but that would be impossible. The thing is tiny and my tank is heavily planted. I just hope the little guy(s) makes it!
Anything special I can do to care for it an increase its chances of survival?
