    It must be a baby guppie, you really do need a sponge filter. I don’t have that much experience when it comes to baby fish, but @Colin_at seems to be very knowledgeable in these matters. :)

    Where is the baby now.? Keep it warm. You can feed it crushed fish food. Best thing would be to get it a starter food like Hikari First Bites. You can also google how to make a baby brine shrimp hatchery and hatch brine shrimp eggs for it. Very easy to do! Baby mollies look just like their parents. Good luck!
