I am pretty sure pandas are not Pygmies and remember there still is the miniumum tank size.

Water changes do not make up for activity.

If they have to, they can end up having my 10 gal all to themselves later...
Exactly the same as my bettas. I do a 30% WC on Wednesday and a 50% with vacuum on Saturday on all my tanks 10g-35g. You will like the corys. Cute and imo hardier than being given credit for in some articles. Could be that they have become hardier by being bred in harder water for a few generations.

I am telling you the right pygmy Cory species will be perfect for you.
