Do endlers eat others' fry?


Recommended Posts

My endler moms don't eat endler fry, so I assumed they also wouldn't eat newborn platy fry.

But today I put 18 platy fry into the endler tank, netting them as they were being born. A few hours later, I could only find about 6. The tank has nothing in it but hornwort (which I removed to count), and an ACO sponge filter (which several of the fry were hiding deep inside of.) 

So, in the endler bellies? Platy fry are super similar to endler fry, so it just doesn't seem likely to me... yet I can't find the fry. I'm hoping it's just that they're hard to see, but I'd appreciate any experience you have with this.
