Your very lucky , the best i get are snails ; My dwarf puffers love them tough , i managed to save a baby who lives in a separate tanks called Norman!
Where i live celestial pearl danios sell for nearly 10 and are really hard to come across !
I expect if there were any fry on plants my puffers would devour them in minutes ... shame

Love puffers, so cute and full of personality.

(Where in the UK are you? I travel to Essex every summer)

The baby Celestials are already coloring up. Well, sort of. They're darker!

The Celestial Pearl Danio are doing well... Six of em.

Here's a short video of 'em. (Watch fast, made it short so it would fit in here!)

Okay, so the video won't fit. A cool picture of nothing really, instead!

Fishies have grown quite a bit. Still not really coloring up. Seems their shape isn't developing into the typical Celestial Pearl Danio. Perhaps they'll change as they mature.

Still a mystery going on here:

Based on the forked tail, and long second dorsal fin, looks like a rainbow fish of some kind. Maybe celebes rainbows.
Edit maybe: Blue Eye Gertrudae Rainbow

That's Pseudomugil furcatus.

I was thinking Celebes rainbows too. At least, that's what they remind me of
