      Are These Koi Fry?

      I found these in my pond last week and don't know if they are koi fry or something else. In addition to my koi, I have two oscars and several plecostomuses (plecostomi?) in the pond. Out of my dozen koi, most are male and three or four female. A couple of the females look egg heavy (wide belly/hip area), but they haven't seemed to get suddenly thinner, and I've seen no eggs.

      They aren't koi. They look like some type of livebearer. Not sure what type though.

      The only reason I didn't specify mosquitofish is the one picture where one seems to have orange on its tail. All the mosquitofish I have seen don't have any colors besides the brownish, grayish colors. It is something closely related if they aren't mosquitofish though.

      Not Gambusia (Mosquito fish )those are wild type guppies Poecilia Reticulata. Endlers are just guppies that got a fancy name thrown on them for marketing.
      They have yet to find any wild endlers.
