Panda Corydoras

General Background

Panda corydoras (or panda corys) are fantastic if you’re looking for a schooling species that will generally stick around the bottom of your tank. Panda corys are schooling fish that do best in groups of at least five individuals, though you may mix them with other corys with generally good results!

Panda corydoras originally came from Peru, but breeders now raise them specifically for the aquarium trade. This means that the number of wild specimens on the market is limited. Usually, you’ll find these fish for sale in groups of at least five because they have an incredibly social nature.

Many aquarium owners consider panda corys due to their unique scale pattern. They have silvery bodies with black spots, specifically around the eyes, which gives them a panda-like appearance. Adult panda corys reach around two inches in length, and they remain highly active throughout their lives.

Keep a fine substrate in your tank if you want happy and healthy panda corys. Coarse rocks may damage the underbelly of your fish, leading to injuries.

Tankmates

Panda corys do well with other cory species and small catfish species such as aspidoras. They also get along well with rasboras, tetras, and danios. They prefer to school at the bottom of the tank, so consider adding fish that like to swim in the middle or top of a tank to fill out your aquarium.

Feeds

Our food of choice: Micro wafers.

Many aquarium owners find it easy to feed and care for panda corys. They do well with prepared feeds, like wafers and sinking frozen foods. You can also feed them wafers or pellets containing invertebrates and insects to keep your panda corydoras healthy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can Beginners Handle Panda Corys?

Panda corys are a great choice if you’re a beginner just setting up an aquarium. These fish are relatively hardy and do well in normal tank conditions. They stay active and can brighten up your tank if you keep the temperatures between 72-80 degrees Fahrenheit with a pH of 5.8-7.2.

Make sure that you only place panda corys in freshwater tanks.

What’s the Lifespan for Panda Corys?

Panda corydoras generally match the longevity associated with other corydoras species. In a well-maintained aquarium, expect these fish to live between 10-15 years. Some panda corys may exceed this lifespan if they receive all the care they need to thrive.

Fish are live animals and we cannot ensure that every one will arrive alive or remain alive. We do ask that if your fish arrives dead (DOA), submit a picture of the deceased fish that is in the bag within 2 hours of the delivery time of your fish. We will work quickly with you to resolve the problem.

We will offer replacement fish for any losses, but do not offer refunds at this time. We can replace fish but  shipping costs is the responsibilityof the buyer. If you put the fish in your tank and it dies or is not acting properly, please contact us, with pictures,within 24 hours. We will again, do everything in our power to resolve the issue and ensure that you have a great experience with these fish.

FAQ

"The fish I received do not look like the fish in thepicture. Why is this?"

-         We typically take photographs of one or two fish when we initially get them in. Since we have a large quantity of most of the various species of fish, it would be understandably impossible to provide a picture ofevery individual fish with a specific species. For some of our more rare orlarger fish, the picture listed may be the actual fish that you are receiving.If this is the case, it will be designated by ?WYSIWYG?, meaning ?what you see,is what you get?.

"What happens if my fish arrive dead?"

-         While this is a rare occurrence, it can and willhappen from time to time. Fish are live animals and we cannot ensure that everyone will arrive alive or remain alive. We do ask that if your fisharrives dead (DOA), submit a picture of the deceased fish that is in the bag.We will work quickly with you to resolve the problem. We will offer replacement fish for any losses, but do not offer refunds at this time. We will reship any replacement fish at the buyer's expense. If you put the fish in your tank and it dies or is not acting properly, please contact us,  with pictures, within 24 hours. We will again, do everything in our power to resolvethe issue and ensure that you have a great experience with these fish.

"What if I'm not home when the fish arrive?"

-         We will always provide you with a tracking number. While the fish are packaged to survive about 72+ hours within the shipping containers, we do ask that you make arrangements to arrive home to inspect your fish as soon as possible after they are delivered to your home. Itis always suggested to provide an area for the delivery person to place the boxthat is out of direct sunlight or extreme temperatures.

"What do I do with my fish once I've unpacked them?"

-         Like you would with any new fish, let the entire bag float in your tank for 15-30 minutes. This allows the temperature withinthe bag to adjust to the same as your tank and will reduce temperature shock onthe fish. After this time, you can add all of the fish and water that is in thebag into your tank. The products used within the water for shipping will notharm any existing fish within your tank and actually makes the transition foryour new fish a bit easier. After this, expect your new fish to take a few daysto become fully adjusted, this includes hiding, floating at the top, sinking tothe bottom, and not eating. After a few days, your new fish should be acting aswimming like they normally would. At this point, enjoy your aquarium!

"I want to return my new fish because x,y,z?"

-         Unfortunately, we are unable to accept returns.We do recommend contacting us via email with yourorder number and as much information as possible. We will try to assist you inresolving whatever the issue may be.

I ordered a six Panda corys and I am pleased especially after ordering from another online company with horrible results. Most of the pandas are 1" as stated but I love the fact that I will be raising them, watching them grow, and having them get used to my routine at an early age. They're extremely active from the start, packed well, and was delivered to me on the second day cor a decent price.
