    I have researched panda cories and it seems they need the temperature lower than the temp needed by albino cories.

    My tank is happiest at 79 degrees.

    I haven't thought much about adding more cories until is was suggested in this thread as a good idea before adding rasboras.

    Which would you like me to do?
    Or, of course i could do both-
    If you can, it'd be great to see a pic of the fish in your tank...I understand about the skittishness of the fish, my sterbai corys are very shy, too...to photograph them, I just darken the room lights and sit quietly in front of the tank, camera ready...they eventually come out to the front, especially if there's a little food out for them to nibble on

    The picture you provided looks to be C. aeneus or the Bronze Cory, they usualy get to 23/4". I think the Cory you have is one of the Brochis species probaly B. splendens, they are closly related but get much bigger than most Cory's.

    Here's a video of them:

    My larger cory catfish i believe is about 3 and a half inches and he is very healthy. I feed my bottom feeders and otto cats blanched vegetables as well as algea tablets and bottom feeder pellets. Make sure your cory gets plenty of meaty food, he is omnivorous. He is the biggest fish in my tank and i am certain he is not a pleco, unless some plecos look like cory cats and have the same look around their mouths as them- I have seen pictures of some cory cats that are similar in size to mine. 3.5 inches is not unusual for some cory species, just making sure it is what you have.

    Just because i'd like to know, why is a 29g with sand substrate and lots of good hiding spots not good for my large cory cat?Because all species of cory are very social fish and he needs a good sized group of his own kind to be comfortable and a 29g in my opinion is too small for 6-10 bottom dwelling 4 inch fish. He's very active at night and sleeps in his boat (he has the boat as territory) during the day, coming out to greet me if i'm there-

    I have found that panda cories don't do well in my tank. Could i keep albino cory cats in my tank? And how many would be a good number?

    Also, could it be that my large cory cat is killing the little ones? I've never seen aggression from him but something kills the small cories, and i'm wracking my brains about it- it's not water quality or nutrition (to my knowledge). I have never known any type of cory to be aggressive in any way to others. If the "little ones" are sick or injured the corys might be eating them, but I doubt they are initiating any aggression.

    I have no problem boosting my cory cat population first, and do i need to find a new home for my large cory? if so, what is it that is optimum for his happiness?

    thanks-
    The picture you posted look like orange laser cory.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all 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.
