Soft sand

What would be a super soft sand for Corydora catfish as a substrate as to not hurt their barbels

Most sand would do. In the past I used the black Taihitian Moon sand from Caribsea (wasn't as fine as I would have liked but the corys didn't seem to mind it and I never noticed any problems with their barbels). Now I use tan sand bought at PetSmart. Some use Pool FIlter Sand or Play Sand (from hardware stores) as it's cheaper.

Cool. I haven't decided yet wether to change out gravel. Corys are all ok. Just want it to stay that way. I've paid a fortune for Rare Corys , don't want them to die
