It might just be a Mollie thing, they can be bullies. How big is the tank and what are the other tank mates?

I think my old substrate was having a real impact on their barbel growth to the point where all of them were ground down and I was facing the prospect of disease or death.

They seem so much happier with the sand although a bit hesitant at 1st to really have a good dig. They seem to have settled though

I have four 3/4" panda corys in my planted 20g/h I was suprised on how active they are I might end up getting one more. I think the odd numbers seem to work better.
