The Panda Cory Cat comes from the tributaries of larger river systems in Central and South America, and is a peaceful bottom dwelling scavenger. Gold with black patches covering the eyes, dorsal fin, and at the base of the tail, requires a well planted aquarium with plenty of hiding places that provide relief from the light. A smooth sand or gravel substrate is needed because of the easily damaged barbells. They enjoy being in numbers, so a small school of six or more is ideal for these corydoras.
The Panda Cory Cat is omnivorous and will require a well balanced diet including dried, flake, frozen and live foods. Feed a quality flake and pellet food as well as frozen brine and live worms.
