Baby Panda Cory

This little guy has emerged yesterday from the Java moss. He is sooo tiny and I am really proud that the Pandas have bred (unintentionally on my part).

How old does he look? Will he survive? It is my first (and probably last) baby fish

Aw! What a cutie!

I really have no idea about age, but he looks to be at a decent size so I think he'll survive and won't become someone's lunch. Seems to be about the size of the shrimp in the shot?

Congrats on the baby, and becoming a 'grandparent'! Always a treat to see babies in the tank.

Awesome baby Panda cory!! Congrats! And yeah, at that size, I'd bet he/she will definitely survive to adulthood with parents.

OMG do you know how special that is??? I can't even keep Panda's alive in my tank... and you have babies!! Woot!!
As long as he is BIGGER than the biggest mouth in the tank... and you don't have any "bullies" in the tank. (Crayfish, Catfish, Siamese and Chinese Algae eaters, (who don't always eat algae and can be mean)).

PS your tank looks AMAZING!!

They are around 10mm at 1 month, 15 mm at 2 months and 20 mm at 3 months. They typically hide most of the time, I would imagine at least another one.

Thank you for that - just what I needed. I must have guessed about right as I figured about 6 - 7 weeks. The shrimp alongside is a juvenile and I held my breath a little this morning when one of my mummy shrimp started to explore his back. He wriggled free and she has left him alone. He was out on the Hydrocotyle this morning and is barely bigger than a leaf - bless him/her.

I've called him 'Payday' as I got my pension yesterday as well.

Thank you all for the lovely comments

Thank you for the lovely comments. Believe me - I didn't do anything special but, if it helps, my water parameters are:
KH = 3/4
PH = 5.5
GH = 9
Nitrites and Ammonia at 0
Nitrates = 5/10

I change 10% water every Thursday (not that the day matters) and hoover the gravel and feed at lights on time only:
1 NovoTab (JBL); a few shrimp pellets, and a sprinkle of Tetramin Junior.

He seems to have survived on the pickings that have floated into the moss. I have loads of plants, an oxygen bubbler but removed the CO2 once the plants became self-sufficient.
Otherwise it's down to good luck. Keep trying - you never know.
