    I love panda corys! I love everything about this fish, so in my empty 60 gallon aquarium I want to get 8-10 of them. What would be the perfect tank mates for panda corys? I have done some research but I was wondering what people think who have actually had/have them in their aquariums.

    I want to get as many fish as a can for my 60 gallon tank. The dimensions are 48 x 12 x 25. I have a canister filter that filters 525 gph, and I also have a HOB filter that filters 210 gph. I also will be getting live plants. I have a few already, but I want a planted tank.

    All suggestions are welcome and appreciated! Thanks!!!

    Pretty much any non aggresive fish can be with corys. And I strongly advise against tiger barbs. They will bully and nip any cories.

    Defintely avoid super aggressive fish. I love corys and have kept them with quite a few different fish. Most leave them alone but I'm sure if you put too territorial of a fish with them they might become stressed or even nibbled on. They are also quite active, such cute and funny guys to have in a setup

    What about a school of cherry barbs and a school of harlequin rasbora? Danios would work too.

    Those are good choices. What about neons or cardinals?

    Stick with neons; they are temperature compatible with pandas. Cardinals prefer warmer temperatures at around 80-84 and are better kept with sterbai, aeneus, GBRs, Discus, etc.

    Cardinals are fine at the temps preferred by pandas, but neons would also work.
