Panda Cory

Corydoras panda

This is one of the smallest Corydoras species and is well suited to a quiet community of smaller fish. Although relatively robust and hardy, these are a slightly more delicate cory and good water quality with plenty of aeration and low nitrates is required for good health. Keep in groups and avoid sharp substrates.

Family Callichthyidae (Callichthyid armored catfishes) | Origin South America; Peru | Breeding Egg clutches | Natural Water Conditions pH 6-8, very soft to hard | Natural Habitat Streams and flowing water | Sexing Females are larger and more rounded
