Unfortunately not well. I'm down to just three. The batch of young ones I got had a rough time, to the point where only one survived. I asked the store about it and they confirmed that the mortality rate of that batch of pandas was exceptionally high, they lost almost all of theirs too. The three that are left are going just fine though. One thing this taught me is to use a quarantine tank.

Aww that's a shame, I'm glad to hear the remaining three are doing well though. Have you thought of getting them some more buddies?

Well pandas are delicate, and young fish are delicate, so I kind of picked a bad combo. I was excited about getting to see them grow up in the tank and let it get the better of my judgment.

I plan to get them some more friends but I'm waiting on it. I've got other fish I want to get in my aquarium as well and I'm moving forward with that. After I introduce my serpaes I'm going to revisit the pandas and get three more, QT'd for a full four weeks, and put them in.
