Corydoras panda

Explanation of the symbols


Family : Callichthyidae
Origin : Peru
Length : 4,5 cm - 1.7"
Min. length aquarium : 60 cm - 25"
English name : Panda Corydoras
Small, peaceful corydoras that you can keep together very well with small cichlids.  The aquarium should be planted densely on the sides and background.  A part of the bottom of the aquarium should be free and should be sandy because they like to search after food in it and their tender barbels are easily damaged.

They are omnivorous.  They clean the leftovers from other fishes. 

Breeding is not easy. Some breeding reports on the internet say that the eggs are spawned during the night.  You should remove the eggs to separate aquarium with water of the same quality of the breeding aquarium.  After 5 days the eggs hatch.  You can raise the young fishes with very small infusoria and later with baby brine shrimp.
