AQUARIUM CARE: C. panda comes from faster moving rivers at the foothills of the Peruvian and Ecuadorian Andes, hence the requirement for slightly cooler tank conditions. A South-American river set up is best; a fine-grade sand or gravel substrate, well-planted and with clean, cool, and well-oxygenated water. Water/gravel cleanliness is paramount in this species, otherwise disease outbreaks are likely. Like all Corys, it should be kept in a group of at least six individuals.

Generally a good community fish if kept with peaceful species of a similar size, characins, killifish etc. Avoid aggressive bottom dwellers.

BREEDING: Like all Corys, spawning can be induced in a well-fed pair, by a large water change of slightly cooler water.

Fishkeeping Facts and Tips

Many aquarium species are territorial; these should only be kept with other fish in a larger tank with space for each. In a well-stocked dealers tank there is no chance to set up a territory, but problems will arise once introduced into your home community aquarium
