I found a panda cory fry!

Masspanic

I couldn't get a picture because when I came back with my phone he was gone, but I looked up photos online and it was definitely a cory fry. I hadn't even noticed my panda cories laying eggs. I can't find the little guy again and I have no idea how many of them there might be. If I can't find them and get them into a breeder box or something, how likely are they to survive?

It may depend on what other fish you have in your tank. The other corys shouldn't bother them.

A female betta, some honeys, and some neons. My betta pretty much stays at the top of the tank though

Depending on the fry's size, I think any of those fish could potentially eat him - especially the betta and the gouramis - but if your tank is well planted, or otherwise has hiding spots, it might be okay.

Okay thank you for your help! I’ve attached a picture of the tank for reference (please ignore the dislodged plants—one of my honeys is a very determined nibbler and I haven’t gotten around to fixing them). And he is very small from what I can tell maybe like a centimeter, more or less just a head with little eyes and a tadpole like body

Depending on its size I'd leave it.
It has survived untill now.
I just found a Panda in the filter.
Pete as we called it is doing great in the main tank.
