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

What fish are good community fish? There is no absolute answer to this, but in general a community tank should contain only species that will tolerate each others behaviour, are approximately the same size, eat the same foods, and accept the same water conditions. Hardy tank bred fish that have adapted somewhat to local water conditions, and have no special dietary requirements usually make good candidates
