Apisto baby! How old you think?

Today I noticed this apistogramma baby!

The substrate is fluval stratum for scale, how old do you suspect it is?

I just got my first apistogramma pair a couple weeks ago and noticed this little cutie amidst an anubias rhizome this morning. I did not see any others although there are lots of live plants to hide in.

5 days to a week maybe?

You don’t say what species of apistogramma? Not that it makes that much difference as ALL the fry are all small when they first hatch , I believe?
As the fry is showing colour and is pretty big I am going to suggest the parents laid the eggs in the first couple of days? The eggs hatched a few days later?

Borellii. If it made it this long I just hope it keeps doing what it is doing. I was very entertained watching it flare and chase plankton
