Mine have much longer elongated "tails" also, more whitish in color.

Question: did you take this w/a microscope digital camera or a digital microscope and what were your power settings?

Anyway, nice *shot!(RIP little fellows!).

*and excuse the bad pun

Do you know what kind of frogs those tadpoles grow up to become?


Are they guppies?

I had some as a kid-also we had a tropical fish tank. I don't remember when or how we gave it up.

They really are tadpoles(or guppies)-this really is embarrassing-boy, do I have egg on my beard!

A classic example of turning the most innocuous thing into something sexual. Like that old saying goes: *“Ho-Knee-Swah Key-Molly-Ponce”.

*Lakota Sioux, or something, for “Evil is he who evil thinks”.

Honi soit qui mal y pense?

Ulp. I thought they were mosquito larvae.

Sea Monkeys? Any day now they will be building little houses and mini-marts in their bowl, and you'll see the daddy leaving his house with a brief case. They are awesome pets! My 70's-80's comic books told me so.....

PS - speaking of comic book deals....think of how much money the government would save if they could get 101 Army men for $1.

I was going to make a joke about someone getting a reverse vasectomy, but I wont.

"Honi soit qui mal y pense?"

Those wily French-constantly appropriating from other
cultures(the English chip being one glaring example, our own Jerry Lewis being another) and now even from Native Americans, no less.

Curse their arrogance, their effete decadence!

Why can't the damn French just accept, be themselves? Mass inferiority complex, perhaps.

Honi soit qui mal y pense, my a*s!

They are guppies, photographed with an everyday camera.

Thanks Jack for responding to my initial post-and sorry for all the static.

Honi soit qui mal y pense!

Jeff: (May I call you Jeff? To be truly formal, I'd think "Geoffrey" would be called for.)
Relax. Chill. Sometimes a guppy is just a smoke, I mean, fish. And all eyes.

Ms. Hagmeier,

Good advice-will do!

So even though Geoffrey is originally French-at least derived fr. Norman French, I like it better than Jeff, so I'll remain, with tongue still planted firmly in cheek, Geoffrey

Cool, Jack. Are these standard feeder guppies, or some of the more elaborate fancy guppies? (I have to admit that I'm more of a rosy barb or head-and-taillight tetra kind of guy myself, but I always have great memories of the first time I watched newborn guppies in my aquarium when I was seven.)

I'm not sure which they are. Their parents have ornate tails -- the males' are colorful and the females' spotted.

If they're the type I suspect they are, you're going to have fun. When even the females have flair, these babies are going to be beautiful.
