    Hi everyone!
    I just came home now after buying some otos, and saw there's a tiny stow away.
    He's also very fast so I couldn't get a decent picture of him and I don't know how to upload videos
    Dows anyone know what he is?

    Oh so exciting!

    Not sure what it is, most likely fry of some sort, maybe keep it safe and separate to see what it becomes?

    I will do! I have my 30l with the Cory fry, don't think this one is big enough to eat them yet...

    I Googled some pictures of guppy fry, I'm not sure it's the same.. This little guy's body is straight right through to his tail, whereas the guppy fry are more curvy

    It does look guppy ish, but maybe also some other poeciliidae. Most of those fry look the same.

    That is true. I'll leave it with the other fry for a while and see how it does. Someone else mentioned it might be a lampeye killifish, and it does have silver on it's eyes

    People selling Otos normally have Norman's Lampeye Killi in the same tank or sell them too. I agree with @TankMaster .

    @MariaS haha yes I definitely did score! And you're right those are such big eyes on him!! It was the first thing I noticed when I saw him!

    That makes sense then! I should've actually just looked on the label on the tank but since I didn't want any other fish and wasn't expecting to get one accidentally I didn't bother looking too closely (usually if I look too much then I want :lol:)
