    84F seems a bit hot for the fish, I would lower the temperature a few degrees.
    When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.

    I agree with Honey Badger. 74-76 would be better for all those fish.

    + to both the above on decreasing the temp
    also - I don't know how large your tank is but if you have room it would be good to increase the bronze school to at least 6 - same with the Panda. cory like to school with their own kind. 8 of all 3 groups would be even better.

    I'm sure there are other species of albino cory, but bronze and albino are usually the same species, the panda's would appreciate more of their own kind though.

    I just checked my temp was 29c (84) even though it was in the 24C (75)slot its an Elite Heater , the panda's would appreciate more of their own kind though. what is there own kind?

    To be honest i wasnt having much look with the pandas someone said my gravel was a bit rough so i went out and got a smoother type which i just put on top of the older gravel i will post a picture of it soon

    More panda corys would be their "own kind".

    Yeah def have 6 of each cory type if the albino's are bronze originally their fine but I'd get more pandas. Temp wise anything above 78 and most corys will not thrive; I know because since my tank hit 80 because of the heat wave here my melinis are lethargic.

    I made the mistake of getting sharp gravel instead of sand when I started my tank and had to replace it all it sucks but if you have corys you are obligated to have substrate that will not destroy their barbels it's just cruel. I'm not saying you are doing anything wrong just make sure it's cory safe substrate.
