The schooling Panda Cory comes from the Amazon River. A peaceful scavenger, the Panda Cory is mainly gray with a “mask” of black, as well as some black coloration at the base of its tail, and dorsal fin. Smooth substrate is a necessity due to the Cory’s “whiskers,” which are also known as barbels. As it is somewhat sensitive to light, please provide the Panda Cory with plenty of plants, caves, and any other hiding places possible. Does best in groups of six or more.
