Looks more like farlowella baby. But could be wrong.

Hmm... I am thinking Oto eggs. Am I right? I may have cheated a bit by looking reeeaaally close to your pictures.

Willie has it. Very Happy Didn't realize there was a couple of adults in the picture when I first posted it, but it's not cheating to look real close!

They look marginally more like Otos now, 5 days old:

Wow, congratulations on the eggs and young! Considering how small Otos are, those eggs and larvae look relatively large. It's amazing how they already have a bit of pigment at five days old. So cool!

Didn't manage to get a scale on the pictures; they were about 3 mm long freshly hatched and are now around 6 mm. They seem about in line with the other nano fish fry that I have, which hatch out at about 2-3 mm and approximately double in mass every week until juvenile stage. These certainly are certainly picking up the adult appearance a lot faster though.

Awesome! I've heard that ottos are really hard to breed, well done!
