The Panda Corydora, scientifically known as Corydoras panda, is a charming and popular freshwater fish cherished among aquarium enthusiasts. Its name originates from its striking resemblance to the endearing giant panda, featuring a contrasting color pattern of black and white.

This small catfish species boasts a sleek, streamlined body adorned with a striking dual-tone coloration. Its base color is a vivid white, which serves as a canvas for distinct patches of deep black markings. The black patches typically cover the fish's eyes, dorsal fin, and the majority of its body, creating a captivating and eye-catching contrast.

Measuring around 1.5 to 2 inches (3.8 to 5 centimeters) in length, the Panda Corydora possesses a tranquil and peaceful demeanor, making it an excellent addition to community aquariums. They are known for their gentle nature and sociable behavior, often seen in small groups scavenging the substrate for food.

These fish thrive in well-maintained aquariums with plenty of hiding spots, such as plants, driftwood, or caves, as they appreciate sheltered areas to retreat to. Being a schooling fish, they feel most secure and exhibit their natural behaviors when kept in groups of at least four or more individuals.

Panda Corydoras are omnivorous scavengers, primarily feeding on bottom-dwelling foods like sinking pellets, flakes, algae wafers, and occasionally relishing live or frozen fare like bloodworms and brine shrimp. A balanced diet is crucial to maintain their health and vibrant coloration.

When it comes to water parameters, these fish prefer well-oxygenated, clean water with temperatures ranging between 72°F to 78°F (22°C to 26°C) and a slightly acidic to neutral pH level (6.0 to 7.5). Regular water changes and a well-maintained aquarium are essential for their optimal health and longevity.

With their endearing appearance, peaceful temperament, and active nature, the Panda Corydora is a delightful addition to freshwater community tanks, captivating aquarists with its unique markings and engaging behavior.
