emperor or kerri fry?

anybody ever have their emperor or kerri tetras spawn? I have ONE fry in my tank and don't know who the parents are. Can't tell if it's the emperors or the kerri blues. I know it's not a ram or an oto, the only other inhabitants. It's about a half inch, elongated, and has a bright gold lateral line, which neither tetra does....I can't believe it has survived to "bigger than a gulp size", as there are loads of fish.
any thoughts?

Hi Bryce! How ya doin?
Just because of the's "rod-shaped" rather than "fish shaped" for lack of better terminology. I've had apisto fry and they were more deep bodied. Rams would be similar I would imagine.

Also the stripe...both the tetras are horizontally decorated like this guy.
thanks! yeah, I love them!
alrighty! I'll see if I can see. Thank you
Brilliant! :)
Thank you! No adipose- so it's an emperor.
Thanks much!
