The Panda Cory is a member of the Catfish family. It has a gold or silver body with black patches covering the eyes, dorsal fin, and at the base of the tail. Like most Catfish, the Panda Cory is a scavenger and will stay mostly on the bottom of the tank.
Panda Corys will thrive in an Amazon biotope tank set up, with plenty of driftwood and a sandy substrate. They enjoy being in numbers, so always try to keep Corys in groups as they’re far more confident and active. A group of at least six is best.
