I definitely think Melanotaenia Goldiei. It's the black stripe that gives it off.

Apparently, "A very healthy fish, very prolific, and fry are quite strong."

If it's a boesmani...

You're going to need a much larger tank. Boesmani are active, 4 inch long schooling fish and a 6 gallon will never cut it for them. Might want to invest in getting another tank before they get cramped.

Wonderful surprise by the way!

I'm gonna be looking for a new home for them sooner or later. It's been fun watching them develop!

Kudos for excellent documenting

Fun first time read even if I'm jumping in late. The full progression of fry to fish in 5 mins

Great job raising em up!

It is better to travel well than to arrive.
