  1. I am setting up two new planted community tanks, which I want to have Corys included.. Can I use Seachem Flourite as my substrate or is it to rough for the Corys? If the standard Flourite is too rough, can I use Flourite Sand ? thanks john
  2. Hey guys, I have 10 cardinals and 1 apisto in my 29-gallon. I notice that a good 75% of the food I feed (when feeding nano pellets and bug bites) just ends up going straight into the substrate. I was thinking of adding some corydoras to the tank, do you think Flourite substrate is too sharp for them? Also, are corys the right choice here? Not sure I can get shrimp with an apisto. Thanks.
  3. I have a 10 gallon that I have a betta in. I was looking at tank mates and I've come to ember tetras and pygmy corydoras, but I have one concern. I have crushed coral topped with river stones and I'm wondering if, while they're digging through the substrate, the crushed coral could hurt their barbels. It's just a shallow layer of each so the crushed coral does show through a little bit around the river stones. If this is the case, I'll just go with malaysian trumpet snails or maybe kuhli loaches if they wouldn't have the same problem, but I'd really prefer the corydoras if ya'll don't think it'll be a problem. I'm also wondering if there may be problems with this plan that ya'll can see that I, as a new hobbyist, might not have thought about. I do have a backup plan if the ember tetras and corydoras don't work in the tank, btw, so I'm not too concerned about that.
  4. I have a 29 gallon tank with smooth gravel substrate and one clown pleco. Will it and corys, if I get them, be fine on it, or do I need sand?
  5. Looking for the best substrate for Corydoras don't know if i should do sand or some other sort of substrate
  6. I've seen the arguments for both gravel being fine and for sand being best. But what is your firsthand experience with this? have you actually experienced any problems? is so what were they and with what species on what substrate? also have you personally observed any difference when dealing with larger vs smaller species?
  7. Does any one know how cory cats will do on a completely cover bottom with small leaf grass?
  8. What’s a good sand substrate for it that will be good for plants and bottom dwellers? And what is a good stocking idea for it ?
  9. Should corydorasbe housed on sand only or is gravel ok? I've seen mixed opinions on this and wondered what the general consensus was here. This is what I'm currently working with:
