The Yo Yos will compete with the cories for food, and as they are somewhat aggressive feeders, the cories will lose out on dinner. Go with more pandas, as they do better in groups of six or more (like all cories).

Are you getting more?
I started off with 2, but after being on this forum decided to get a third as they like groups. An hour after the third went in, they became a lot more visible, active and interesting.

Khuli you mean? Khuli's go great with cory cats, I used to have several with several cories. I agree with dave though, most loaches and corys will compete for food, I say 2-3 corys per loach.
