    Previously the pond was full of pea soup. These days the pond in under shade cloth completely because of hot summer and now within a week the water is crystal clear.
    Yesterday I was picking the string algae from the roots of umbrella palm. Suddenly I noticed some kind of tiny(0.5mm) larve, First I thought may be they're of mosquito or dragonfly.
    But their movement was different from mosquito larvae, also they don't have legs like dragonflies.
    Now I'm Sure that they are fish fry, to make sure of it I checked on google images and found them.
    (It my first time with fish babies)
    Took some pictures

    Now today found one more baby, it seems elder than previous one. It has got tail, fins, more developed body etc.

    Now I want to know whose fry are they, as I have 2 red caps and 2 shubunkins. Can we tell by looking at them?

    My shubunkins always show color as fry, the goldfish tend to be plain or black. They show color at a small size. A bit bigger than yours are right now.

    Alright, so I can assume that they are from red caps.

    However, I've never thought that I could see them in my pond.
    I'm happy now.
