Panda Corys over-breeding


First off, some background: I am a fish moron. I have a 10 gallon freshwater aquarium. About a year ago, I bought two panda corys. A few weeks went by and I noticed a couple baby pandas swimming around. Awesome, I thought, they are such nice fish, I'm glad to have some more. However, they kept breeding and are now up to about 13 or 14!

Does anyone know how to make them stop breeding? I'm really getting worried that this is way too many fish for a tank this size (I also don't want to get another tank). Is there some chemical I can use to suppress their hormones or something? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated since I know so little about this topic.

If it matters, besides the pandas, the only other fish in the tank is one lonely tetra (his friends died off over the years) and a bunch of small snails.

Thank you!

hello and welcome, :)
goodness how lucky are you,all those pandas,
can you not sell them to the fish store. ?
there are no products to stop breeding that i am aware of,
you are producing the correct invironment that they
are happy with.

Welcome to

The best solution would be to sell the fry. There's no need to intervene with nature. Consider yourself lucky your pandas bred. Most of us have not done this yet.
