Cory's

Can they handle a gravel bed? I've got gravel, with some of those smaller ultra stones covering the top. Bought 2 cories a week or so ago, and they seem to be fine -- just read a book, however, that recommends sand for 'em.

I've had them with a gravel substrate before. You should be okay with that.

i kept cories with a gravel substate for two years. their barrells(sp?) were long and healthy and they even once spawned.

What you want to stay away from is sharp edged gravel with corys. As long as you use rounded gravel, the corys will be happy. You can always put a sandbed in the tank somewhere for them if you want to. My FW tank is 1/2 gravel and 1/2 sand. The corys spend 90% of their time on the sand side and I always feed them there.

Thanks

Thanks all. Really helps.

PS - what's this "Kudos" stuff? And what's with the ratings? Newbie, Freak, etc.?

Kudos explanation

Couldn't find a ratings link, (prolly around somewhere) but basically the more you post, the higher you move up in the ratings.

Both just fun little features
