 I  have  these  natives  in  one  of  my  planted  tanks.  I  caught  them  in  the  wild.  Need  their  ids.
 
 1.
 
 
 
 
 2.
 
 
 
 
 
 Also,  I  need  to  know  if  I  can  keep  my  guppy  fries  with  them.  I  have  fries  just  over  a  month  old  and  another  lot  which  is  around  a  week  old.

 pic  1  -  female  guppies
 
 pic  2  -  juvi  tilapia  
 
 well  they  are  not  compatible,  the  tilapia  will  soon  devour  your  guppies.

 The  first  one  is  The  mosquitofish  (Gambusia  affinis)  these  can  inter  breed  with  guppies..  so  your  next  batch  of  guppy  fry  will  be..   Sad  
 The  second  is  as  said  by  SuPro,  Juvinile  Tilapia..  which  will  be  happy  to  be  with  your  guppies  and  mosquitofish,  they  will  pick  one  when  hungry..  Chuckle
 So  advice  is....   remove  them  ASAP.

 I'll  remove  the  Tilapia.  Need  to  get  another  tank  now..   Shocked  
 The  1st  one  looks  more  like  Oryzias  species  (oryzias  latipes  maybe)  What  do  you  think?  The  mosquito  fish  looks  a  little  different  (quite  scaly  as  compared  to  the  one  in  my  tank).  I'll  try  to  get  a  better  picture  today.

 And  one  more  thing,  I  am  sure  none  of  these  two  are  natives..  Mosquito  fishes  were  introduced  here  to  control  the  mosquito  menace,
 and  Tilapia  were  introduced  all  over  the  world  as  food  fisheries..

 Hi,
       The  first  one  is  mosquito  fish.  I  am  100  %  sure.  I  have  been  collecting  them  from  small  ponds  which  forms  during  rainy  season.  Fish  is  swept  into  these  small  ponds  from  ditches  during  heavy  rains.
 
 These  were  left  in  the  ditches  for  mosquito  control.  I  stopped  collecting  them  finally  when  i  started  go  to  a  job  Smile.
 I  dropped  dozen  of  them  in  a  huge  cement  tank  which  receives  direct  sunlight.
 
 The  cement  tank  has  hundreds  of  them  now.  They  feed  on  algae  too.  I  was  using  them  as  free  feeder  fro  my  oscars.

 The  Tilapias  are  out  of  the  tank.  They  had  been  attacking  my  pilea.  Fortunately  I  could  save  some.  Hope  they'll  grow.  I  have  transferred  all  my  1month  old  guppies  into  this  tank.  They  are  having  a  good  time  with  these  fishes  although  I  couldnt  make  out  if  they  are  guppies  or  mosquito  fish.  One  of  these  fishes  has  an  orange  streak  at  its  tail  fin.
