Yeah, I couldn't manage Eco complete. I kept making a mess of the tank. Lol. Now I use it in terracotta pots and use either sand or fine gravel as substrate. The sand I barely touch with the siphon, whereas with the gravel I shove it right in there. It's heavy enough that it only goes halfway up the tube before falling back down while the detritus get sucked up into the hose

I would do a PWC immediately and not even wait to test if I found a dead fish. JMO

Why wait to test ?

Sorry you lost your Cory, they are my favorite fish
