    This morning my plan was to remove the decorations and do a deep gravel vac of our 20 gallon high.

    When I lifted the castle up something very tiny swam away.
    I tracked it down and got a photo.

    This is the first one I've found this year, and fourth one since last summer.
    Hoping there are more hiding out among the swords. 20180520_105921.jpg

    Yes, Panda Cory.

    See the two bladder snails?
    It's right under the smaller snail.
    Very tiny. 20180520_134914.jpg

    It’s towards the left.

    The snail furthest left on the top of the gravel is left of the fry.

    Me too.

    While I was changing the water it managed to avoid the zebra danios and amano shrimp that were roaming around, so it looks promising.

    A month later...

    Spotted this little one amongst the Amazon swords after this morning's water change.

    No idea if that's the same one I had spotted last month, or if there are more, but I was really happy to see that a panda cory fry had survived and is slowly growing. 20180617_095601.jpg
