    In my experience, corys are all the same. It's just a matter of how big they get.

    Under species information it says 2.2". Not too big.

    Skunk cories are marked just a little different than panda cories are. I have pandas in one tank and one lonely little skunk in the other. It is very hard to find them in my area and I'm not having much luck online either.

    They are smaller than the pandas are and seem a bit skinnier too - but that might be an optical illusion because of the way their stripes run.

    Ok my Local fish store has skunks cheaper than pandas so I may end up going with those instead. Thanks for the info!

    I just bought 2 of what were labeled Skunk Coryies today. However after looking them up when I got home. The Skunks seam to have one black strip coming up their nose and down their back. I beleive what I got were actually Bandit Cories. Mine have a stripe coming down their face then another coming down from dorsal fin down in front of tail fin. I just picked them out cause they look cool. I forget what the other 2 I got were called. I think I paid like 2.50 or 3 ea.
