The only place I can find females are at PetCo, the LFS doesn't sell them.

I havn't had Panda Corys, but at work we have a very aggresive Betta named George, we've had him for a year and a half, he's very big and loves his five gallon, but one weekend my boss thought he looked lonely and threw him two albino corys with him. I was shocked on Monday when I arrived and he hadn't killed them, but in fact he loves them and could really care less what they do in "his" tank. I was surprised.

I've never had trouble with a betta and corys, but then again the ones I've had were non-aggresive, whereas George is a very angry little man, lol. He constantly flares at me when I walk past the tank and even when I feed him.

Pardon me for jumping on but morado has just recovered, right? I think it's best to continue nurturing him for a while, what with there being a chance of relapse. I have one gourami whos been healing from a fight for nearly 3 weeks, sometimes it takes a while.

In my experience young females are more easy going, Its when they mature that they can get Very moody in a split second, I've watched them give chase and literally search out the female or male to finish the job.
Red females are the worst, Blue follows close behind, Multi colors and white have been the most peaceful for me.
If they can't find her the female that is harrased ends up going down hill fast from mostly stress I believe..

I have never had any troubles with female betta's and cories tho. They seem to be good tank mates.....
Just make sure they have plenty room so as to not stress each other out..

It is also always a good idea to add the Betta last...

The Panda Corie will in no way shape form or fashion hurt your betta,
Its the betta you have to worry about hurting your corie..

Always in NEED & looking for more Tanks!

Thanks chicklet! She is a light color,so hopefully that means she a peaceful little fish lol. I have a 9 1/4 gallon tank (will be upgrading to a 10) so there is enough room for everyone in there.
