    I purchased 6 panda corys for my cycled 55 gallon tank a week ago. They rarely move at all and usually spend all day piled on top of one another. I had albino corys a few years ago and they are always active. Could they be afraid of by BN pleco (male about 3.5”) I checked my water and it is 0/0/20 (where it usually stays). My tank has been established for 3 yrs this July.

    2 angels
    8 harlequin rasbora
    4 molly
    5 ghost shrimp
    4 nerite snail
    1 BN pleco
    6 black fin tetra (will up to 8 eventually)
    6 panda cory (might get more. All my LFS had)

    I have 8 panda cories and typically during the day they lay at the bottom of the tank but first thing in the morning and as the sun goes down at night they become incredibly active

    Thanks. My albino corys were constantly running around so I thought these guys would be the same. I went to my LFS to get albino corys and they were out. They had panda corys for $3 each so I bought those.
