From what I've been told;

panda corys are schooling fish and suggested number are 6 --
-- i'd say at least a 10g for qt unless you're doing the extra water changes and you get them small
--they grow to be.....i forget. 1.5-2.5 inches? they're small, and good sorority companions
-- you can feed them algae wafers, but will eat leftover food and dead plant matter in your substrate
-- sharp gravel isn't a good thing for them, they can injure themselves when looking for food, so freshwater sand is best if you can find it. My PetSmart didn't have it so I opted for some of the gravel I normally use which is much smoother.

I checked ont hem this morning and they're adorable!

Okay I think I will get like five for my 20 gal sorority, I have gravel but it is like a substrate and no very sharp. My Pet smart sells them.

I think 2 weeks should be enough to keep them in clean water and watch for any signs of disease. LG would have a better idea, but I think 2 weeks should be long enough.

pygmies are great! We have a bunch.

I miss my big cories, so I'm going to live vicariously through you, Syriiven!

I just noticed that all of your fishes names are Japanese! Amaterasu, the sun goddess... Very near!
