We have an answer!!!
For those playing along at home the three possibilities for the mystery fry where:
3) Bala sharks
And the answer is...... 4) None of the above. Turns out these little fish are Endler's Livebearer. I have a tank of these running as an offshoot of my main tank. A wee pump fills it from the sump and it overflows into the main tank, which overflows into the sump. So these fry managed to get past the pre-filter in their tank, swim along a tube into the main tank, avoid being eaten in there and then get swept into the sump. I am completely amazed they managed it to be honest. They must have swum along the tube when i had the pre-filter off for cleaning i guess. Still, they got rescued and are now back in with their friends in the Endler colony, so all's well that ends well.
