Cory Cat Sandbox Idea

    I was doing some research about Cory Cats, when I came across a few people who made "sandboxes" for them if they did not have an all sand substrate. I decided to try it out. I know it's not a real big area, I may end up adding some more sand eventually.

    I'm getting some cories tomorrow and I am so excited! :;rocker

    Either Albinos or Pandas. I can't decide.

    Pandas would look great against the white sand!

    My wife has a sand pathway through her black gravel in her tank, the corys love it.

    Yes they do, panda corys prefer cool temperature, albino would be better or if the Op likes the markings of the pandas then Oiapoquensis are very similar if you can find them, they can handle the higher temperature.
