The Panda Cory is our favorite Corydoras species, this is a longfin variation desirable to many hobbyists. Their unique patterns and long fins allow them to stand out in any aquarium. Their size ranges from around an inch to 1.5 inches when shipped. They reach a max size of around 2.5 inches.
The Longfin Panda Cory is a great addition to a planted community tank. They are extremely peaceful fish with a great personality. They are enjoy schooling with other cory species. Due to their peaceful nature, they are usually shrimp safe. Although, they can occasionally eat baby shrimp.
The scientific name for Panda Corys is Corydoras panda longfin.
We feed our Panda Corys a large variety of foods, finely ground Northfin flake foods, small Northfin pellets (veggie, community), frozen foods, live baby brine shrimp and occasionally blackworms
Our Tank Parameters
I purchased several small fish species - everyone arrived alive and active (this was Omaha in the middle of winter -with a heat pack). My original fish are healthy, no new organic material introduced to the tank, and it’s great to see so much activity and color.
They all arrived healthy, but the tiniest one died a few days later, who knows why...it could have just got too stressed in the trip. BUT....the remaining 3 had two babies about 4 months later! I am so happy because I LOVE these little cuties! They are in a 20 gallon planted tank that we call our "happy tank" because it must be balanced just right so that maintenance is a breeze, no problems whatsoever. I think it's partly because of these little beauties constantly going around cleaning everything! I always have good luck with my orders from Flip whether it's fish or plants or whatever (except Monte Carlo lol, every order of them always die, probably my fault).
They arrived alive and well. Great packaging, and got a good mix of males/females. Maybe I’ll get even more!
Very nice fish. Well adjusted and doing great!
happy healthy cool little cory cats
