serpae fry: two weeks

At best estimate, my fry is two weeks old now. I tried very hard to get a photo, but there's no way my camera can replicate what my eyes see. I can now make out the adipose fin and I can see its digestive tract. With the thick layer of subwassertang now on the bottom of the box, it's often hard to see the fry at first-
but it's fun to watch it hunting down mosquito larvae in the greenery. It's learned to find them at the water surface, too, and to take food bites there. In this picture the fry is on the left just above that strip of light, head up tail down.
This picture it's in the upper right corner of the box.
Closest I could get, fry just above the subwassertang.
