My brother netted these fish in a storm drain/channel that were previously thought to be tadpoles. We were using them to feed his baby turtles. But we've had them for several days and they haven't metamorphosed. Upon closer examination, I noticed they had fins. I live in South West Florida and the high temp is about 80 for this time of year.An image Another Image

I don't know if they're fry, they might be some kind of hibernating fish. Where I live we have storm channels to prevent the lawns from flooding when it rains. It's only rained enough to fill the channels within the last 2 or 3 weeks.

mostly becuse it has the up turned mouth for eating floating things like mosqiuto larve
and also the fact that you said it was in a storm run off drain since guppys were spred world wide as a means to stop maleria and dengue fever.
I have a well established wild guppy breeding colony in my 55g.
by the way how did you catch them net or trap????????????

By netting, my brother feed him to his turtles already. I don't think they're guppies.
